Riverside—After nearly 50 years, Cask ‘n Clever, a steakhouse on University Avenue in Riverside, has closed. Last Monday, the restaurant opened for business as usual, and at the end of its normal business day, shuttered the eatery for good.
Cask ‘n Clever Steakhouses once dotted the Southern California landscape, but most locations closed over the years. The only remaining original Cask ‘n Clever Steakhouse is in Rancho Cucamonga.
The property where the Riverside restaurant sits was sold to a developer who purportedly has plans to redevelop the large swath of land where it sits into apartments for students who attend the nearby University of California Riverside.
