Or Is Joseph Leonard’s Owner Taking Fedora?

News of Fedoras imminent closure drew a comment that seems highly plausible: I live across the street and spoke with Fedora on Sunday. She gave the lease to the owner of Joseph Leonard. Again, the name of the LLC that aims to take over the liquor license is Little Wisco, and it so happens Gabriel Stulman went to the University of Wisconsin (he has cited Caf Montmartre in Madison as an inspiration for his restaurant career). Fedora certainly fits his preference for smaller restaurants with a weathered look, and its just a couple of blocks from Joseph Leonard and a planned sister establishment. Until we hear back from him with the official word, our moneys on Stulman with thanks to commenter Maryelleng.
