As has been rumored for weeks, the Sloughhouse Inn will be taken over by the owners of Sacramento’s Lucca and Roxy restaurants, the Bee reports. It says the restaurant, being renamed Meadowlands, could be open as soon as early November.

The company’s operations manager, Dominic Sirianni, said Ron and Terri Gilliland, who have run Lucca for 13 years and Roxy for 10, have signed a five-year lease on the Sloughhouse property. They plan to offer dinners Wednesdays through Sundays with breakfast on weekends, he said, and they’re already booking holiday parties.

Despite the new name, the Gillilands, whose restaurants are highly regarded, intend to keep the structure of the historic landmark largely intact.

The 160-year-old Sloughhouse Inn has had a rough run in this century, dark and shuttered most of the time. Its most recent operators, Mark and Betsy Hite of Wilton, closed in June after 14 months of business.
