The former home of Iozzo’s Italian Restaurant in Weston could be seeing new life as a supper club in the near future, according to documents filed with the village.

A group of investors is looking to reopen the property as a new restaurant called The Jig. The investors are going through the permitting process at this time, and have filed a business plan with the village. Under that plan, they state they are planning to build a restaurant that will serve “Supper Club style dinners, fish fry, Saturday prime rib, Sunday brunch and a lunch menu of sandwiches, salads and more.”

The location holds a wealth of history for the village and is nestled alongside the Eau Claire River next to Yellow Banks Park. Owners of The Jig aim to capitalize on that by opening up the view to the river with new landscaping and a refurbished patio, according to the business plan. They’re also installing a new bar and a new kitchen to accommodate the change in menu.

The group plans on hiring six full time staff, and six to ten more part timers as well.

Iozzo’s, at 3115 Camp Phillips Road, closed earlier this year after nearly 40 years of service to the metro area.

  1. Mr. Iozzo can stop rolling in his grave as the property will again be serving quality meals. It’s a shame it went downhill after he moved to the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport MS.
