The Villari's website redirects to a Jerseys Pub website, and the Villari's Facebook page now says Jerseys Pub. An October post on their Facebook page says the bar is under new management, so it is unclear who is now running the bar.
In a NY Times article from 2012, Villari's said they kept the Restaurant Impossible changes for about 60 days, and then went back to their old menu as the changes were not working out for their clientele. Villari's didn't have the best reviews on either Yelp or Tripadvisor, so maybe they will have better success as a bar.
As Villari's is no longer operating as a restaurant under the same name, this restaurant will be marked as 'Closed' on the Restaurant Impossible Update page. This is the 4th restaurant from the first season of Restaurant Impossible that has closed.
