The restaurant had recently completed work on a new lounge area and held a soft opening of the area Thursday, according to a post to its Facebook page Friday. 

"Thank you to our family and friends who were among the first to celebrate this new milestone with us!" the Friday post read, in part.

The Justine's Facebook page also drew comments from patrons upset about the fire.

"Such fantastic food," one woman wrote as she expressed her sadness, "it can be rebuilt and you'll grow even more."

A Daily Gazette restaurant reviewer visited Justine's in 2013 and wrote that visiting "felt like we'd stepped into a neighbor's home."

"Overall, our dinner at Justine’s reminded us of someone’s home cooking," the reviewer wrote. "This place clearly puts an emphasis on from-scratch cooking."
