|Slip slider-ing away into the night: Primebar bids an abrupt farewell|
Around 11:00 p.m. on Sunday night, word started getting around that Primebar in Calhoun Square was abruptly closing its doors for good. The chain, which is owned by Restaurants America, opened its Minneapolis outpost in the ill-fated space at the corner of Hennepin and Lake last summer. After a false start in June, business seemed to be humming along just fine, though reviews were less than stellar.
The Hot Dish received the following tip from a patron of the restaurant: "At about 9:00 p.m. they found out they were getting evicted so they told us all to pay our tabs and leave."
