I saw her a couple of weeks ago and asked that very question.

Her response...We hope to open in March.

I'm excited to see what they are doing to the place. If they open in March that will be almost a year later. A long time for a re-model.

Its weird, they had just remodeled several years ago... they must be up to something big, they will have to do some major business to recoup the money lost from being closed that long. Hopefully Jill has taken some much need vacay!

Previous posters be aware: there was a fire in 2013 necessitating the closure and thus reopening.

Thanks 802. Pretty sure everyone knows there was a fire. If she "needed" to re-open, I'm sure she would have by now. Restaurants can be built from the ground up in less than the 8 months that have gone by since the fire. I'm guessing insurance is covering everything and she is enjoying some time off, can't say I blame her.

City of SB permitting issues since it is an old building and it was an electrical fire are part of the delay per her brother John. Hopefully March!

547 - that's not at all long for a restaurant remodel in Santa Barbara city limits, its actually pretty typical. While it it physically possible to do the work of a fairly extensive remodel in a month or two, there are a lot of conditions and inspection requirements locally and whenever you open up a wall or floor there is a good chance of finding hidden surprises. In our little town, those hidden gems mean a stop work order and multiple trips back to city hall instead of just doing the right thing per local code like in most places.

look at what is going on with Ces't Cheese up the street, the city just rakes you over the coals

Restaurant remodel is a better job and business than restaurant opening and operating. How many times have we seen LONG remodeling times (State and A most recently) and short survival times. There must be substantial tax benefits for the capital costs but can it be profitable to go out of business?

FROM Jill's Place Restaurant on Facebook:

We have exciting news – Jill's Place will be reopening soon!

We are finally recovering from the fire we experienced last May that severely damaged the restaurant forcing a complete remodel from top to bottom. We used this opportunity to make your favorite local place even BETTER! The interior has received a major update, ‘back of house’ is completely brand new, which includes new cooking equipment to enhance all your JP favorites. Some really tasty and fun new items will be waiting for you too.

The team is doing their best to reopen the restaurant's doors in April. Please like Jill's Place on Facebook for sneak peeks and information on our grand reopening. We'd also love to hear about your favorite Jill's Place dishes. Here's to sharing our fresh new face, quality food and genuine drink at Jill's Place soon!
- Jill
