Just three months after launching its long-awaited brunch service, small-plates-and-cocktails spot 2nd Story has announced it'll close its doors before the end of July. Chef/owner Erin McBride announced via email that the restaurant's final day of service will be July 20. 2nd Story, whose name referred to the restaurant's location in relation to collaborators Jeremy Adams and Andrea Pastor's Cellar Door Roasters, opened in August 2011 and quickly earned the reputation of a solid date spot. Per the announcement:
After a pair of wonderful and crazy years, the current incarnation of 2nd Story will come to a close on July 20th. We have been truly bowled over by the great reception we've gotten from all our lovely customers these past two years. Happily, we've also been taken a bit by surprise by how busy Cellar Door Coffee has become in the same stretch of time. In order to maintain our high quality standards, we have decided to refocus some of our energy on providing more food and pastries on the first floor cafe. Erin will continue to bake all the goodies (blueberry buckle is back!) and will be adding several heartier breakfast and lunch options over the next few months.
2nd Story will serve out its "current menu" during dinner this Wednesday through Saturday, and brunch on Saturday and Sunday. The final three nights of dinner will be Wednesday the 17th through Friday the 19th.
