FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- The Rib Room restaurant's building has been sold to new owners, but the restaurant will remain open and reportedly see "very little change."

“We had an opportunity to sell the real estate, but also to continue owning and operating the restaurant as we have for the past 55 years,” says Rib Room Owner Sam Filippou. “It was the best of both worlds: The Henry brothers will do what they do best, which is buying and fixing up commercial buildings; and we’ll continue doing what we do best, which is offering the best in fine dining.”

The building was sold to local real estate investors Matt, Kurt, and Chris Henry of Henry Brothers Real Estate. They plan on turning the Rib Room's family room into a martini bar.
