After serving Mountain Area residents and world travelers for 18 years, Crab Cakes Family Restaurant, Roman’s Bar and Yosemite Catering is in escrow.
Owned by Roman and Laura Zabicki, the restaurant, bar and catering service is being sold to Ray and Jennifer Newman, of Mariposa, owners of Charles Street Dinner House.
Escrow is expected to close Sept. 30, with the new owners taking over Crab Cakes Oct. 1.
The Zabicki’s will continue to own and operate “Sweet Dreams Cakes & Flowers.”
Crab Cakes, know for its nautical decor and 240-gallon fish tank, doubled in size in 2012, when Roman and Laura relocated the restaurant across Highway 41 from its original location behind Subway Sandwhiches, to the building that formerly housed Casa Velasco Mexican Restaurant.
“This community has been very supportive of us since day one, and we can’t thank everyone enough for making us part of the community,” Roman said. “We don’t have as many customers as we do friends.”
“We are excited and are looking forward to joining the Oakhurst community and sharing our love and passion for quality food and great service,” Raymond Newman said.
