Owners say it was a difficult decision, but didn’t elaborate on the damage that led to the closing.

On the restaurant’s website, they started renovations back in 2018 but damage from Hurricane Florence pushed their opening date back months. The downtown Wilmington restaurant eventually opened in May.
