|Last call for Cafe Maude at Loring |
When Cafe Maude
opened a second location in Loring Park
, the spot seemed like a perfect fit. The elegant dinner menu paired beautifully with a focus on craft cocktails, and the crushed-velvet-accented dining room was reminiscent of the old Loring Cafe. However, it wasn't quite as successful as the owners had hoped. They have announced that this week they will soon serve their final meal and not reopen in 2014.
In a statement, the owners said simply, "We didn't hit the home run we were hoping for with our Loring Park location." New Year's Eve will be their final service, and there are still a few reservations available.
But don't count owner Kevin Sheehy out just yet -- the Loring Park space won't be dark for long. The lights are expected to flip back on in March 2014 with an entirely new restaurant concept. So far, he's keeping mum on the details.
In the meantime, swing in to Cafe Maude at Loring and say farewell. The Penn location continues to thrive and has even resumed lunch service.
