Freiburg Gastropub sold, will reopen as new restaurant

The switch will occur in April

MADISON, Wis. - Freiburg Gastropub on Monroe Street has been sold.

Tommy Van Ness, the FirstWeber Realtor of the property, said the switchover to a new restaurant will happen in April and it will be called the Tin Fox.

Freiburg Gastropub opened in the summer of 2015. Noble Chef Hospitality Group's Jack and Julie Sosnowski, who opened the Ivory Room Piano Bar, Wisconsin Brewing Tap Haus, Buck and Badger Northwoods Lodge, and Rare Steakhouse, currently own Freiburg Gastropub.

According to Jack, Freiburg Gastropub had an offer from a chef out of Milwaukee and decided to accept.

Jack said, they might explore Freiberg's menu concept at some of the other Noble Chef Hospitality Group's restaurants.

According to the listing on FirstWeber Realtors' site, Freiburg Gastropub has a 78-seat capacity and features a bar with 32 taps and 20 bar stools.

Freiburg Gastropub is known for its contemporary German-style cuisine and extensive tap list. According to its website, the restaurant offers one of the largest on-tap German beer selections in Madison and one of the largest selections in Wisconsin. It has 32 German import beers on tap.

Jack said Freiburg Gastropub's last day will be sometime during the second week of April.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story said Steven Weber was an owner of Freiburg Gastropub. He is not an owner and has been removed from the article. In addition, the article previously quoted Van Ness as stating the Sosnowkis were having trouble keeping up with all of the restaurants. Jack Sosnowski said they sold the restaurant because of a good offer.
