Gothamist Reports That reBar Owner Jason Stevens Was in Court Today

reBar owner Jason Stevens, who abruptly closed the DUMBO eatery last week destroying the wedding plans of many couples, appeared in Brooklyn Criminal Court today according to Gothamist.

Gothamist: In an email, our tipster writes, “I’m a criminal defense attorney in Brooklyn and a colleague of mine just witnessed the criminal arraignment of Jason Stevens. He’s been found! I don’t have all of the details right now, but he’s been charged w/ felonies. He, not surprisingly, made the 30k bail.”
Some former employees told us that Stevens made off with around $150,000 in wedding deposit checks and $27,000 in cash. Stevens had been audited by the IRS last year, and those former staffers suggest he owed $2.5-3 million in unpaid sales tax.
