Quite a few young Brooklyn couples found out last week that their wedding deposits to Brooklyn restaurateur Jason Stevens of Rebar has been lost. It is unlikely that they will ever see their money again, as evidence mounds that Stevens, who has disappeared, was under investigation and owed the IRS quite a bit of money. One of the unlucky couples is from Carroll Gardens. Stephanie Kutch and her fiancé Christian Pascarella visited ReBar a few times in the past few months before deciding to have their special day at the popular Dumbo venue. Between visits, the fee kept on increasing, so Jason Stevens encouraged the young couple to pay the entire fee in advance "to lock in the price." Stephanie and Christian handed Jason $17,500 of their hard earned money in March 2014.
