The owner of the restaurant that previously occupied Sassafras American Eatery’s location in West Highland wants to get rid of the real estate.

Chef Mark Ferguson has listed the two-story property at 3927 W. 2nd Ave. for $2.3 million, according to the listing.

Ferguson, acting as JLF3362 LLC, purchased the 5,451-square-foot building in 2013 for $667,000, records show. He opened Solitaire, a fine-dining small bites concept, with his wife Andrea Faulisi in the building in 2015. It closed in 2018.

Sassafras moved in in March 2019 after closing its original Jefferson Park location.

The planned sale doesn’t affect Sassafras’s lease, according to broker Peter Peluso of Legend Partners, who is marketing the property with colleague Will Matthews.

Sassafras, a Southern-influenced brunch spot, has two other locations, 320 E. Colfax Ave. in Cap Hill and 1027 Washington Ave. in downtown Golden.
