Restaurant Roundup: Delayed openings, craft beer with cupcakes

At least the pizza is back. Godfather’s Pizza ran into “a lot of unforeseen issues” during its remodeling project that started a month ago. The restaurant at 5107 W. 41st St. is still working to remodel the dining area, so it has reopened the updated kitchen for carryout and delivery orders. General manager Nancy Schmeling hopes to be completely reopened in early December.

Josiah’s Coffeehouse & Cafe has pushed back the move to its new space. Owner Steve Hildebrand had hoped to be open at 104 W. 12th St. by Jan. 1, but he said in a Facebook post that it will be closer to Feb. 1. He’s also renaming the business Josiah’s Coffehouse, Cafe & Bakery and adding Phillips Gathering Place, an event room that will be able to seat 50 to 60 people. “This space will be warm and inviting – and very unique,” he wrote. “Guests will enjoy a great meal and conversation at 9-foot farmhouse tables, instead of the usual round banquet tables, and the surroundings will be fantastic.” The restaurant opened in 2012 in the CNA Surety Building at 101 S. Reid St.
