Busy Days for DUMBO's reBar Owner Jason Stevens

 It's been a busy couple of days for Jason Stevens, owner of DUMBO's now-shuttered reBar restaurant.

The man who infamously ruined the wedding plans and financially wiped out hundreds of couples pleaded guilty to grand larceny and criminal tax fraud in connection with stealing sales tax. He is going to prison for up to a decade, and he has entered a tentative agreement to pay more than $1 million in restitution to couples who booked their weddings at the popular Front Street establishment.

We should have known things were going south when they shut down the ramen booth at reBoot.
