Restaurant leases former F.W. Sullivan’s space

Another restaurant will open in the large William Street space that was once home to F.W. Sullivan’s in downtown Fredericksburg.

The restaurant’s owners on Monday finalized a lease on the 7,500-square-foot space at 407-409 William St. and can now start renovations, said building owner Tommy Mitchell.

Mitchell did not identify the new restaurant but said the owners have another location elsewhere. He said the owners would likely provide more information soon.

Mitchell had considered subdividing the space, but the restaurant’s owners decided to occupy the entire building.

F.W. Sullivan’s closed in July. Three previous restaurants and bars — Longstreet’s American Eatery, Las Palmas Cafe and University Cafe — also all opened and closed there within the past several years.
