What's going on at Rae?

Rae, the upscale eatery that is due to relocate from the Cira Centre to Two Liberty Place next year, is closed this weekend. An owner says it's temporary.

What's going on at Rae?

Something is going on at the Cira Centre across from 30th Street Station.

But there's nothing going on now at Rae, the upscale eatery owned by Daniel Stern and Sue Mahoney. It's dark, but Mahoney told me today that it is just closed for this holiday weekend.

Two weeks ago, I reported that Rae would be relocating to the 37th floor of Two Liberty Place next fall and that Stern would reconfigure the Cira Centre space into something more casual. Since then, Stern has provided no info about when Rae would close officially. Stern also owns Gayle in Queen Village.
