As of just a few weeks ago, Back Porch Cafe owners Keith Fitzgerald and Marilyn Spitz no longer own the landmark eatery. Longtime employees Dmitry Shubich and Aksana Voranova have purchased the restaurant.
That’s the good news. Even better news is that Keith and Marilyn will remain on staff as, in Keith’s words, “facilitators and advisors.” Things get even better: Mixologist Bee Neild will remain at his post behind the bar, and Executive Chef Tim McNitt will remain in the kitchen. Everything is in place to ensure that the ownership change will be seamless.
The Back Porch Cafe is one of Rehoboth’s longest-lived fine-dining destinations.
