Thanks to the many readers who sent me this sad news. Meridian Restaurant up in Brightwood has closed. It was a beautiful space so I hope something nice goes in and of course I wish the folks behind Meridian Restaurant the best of luck.
Here’s the note that was sent out:
“To all our patrons and friends,
Last night we closed Meridian Restaurant and Bar. My partners and I have concluded this is not the right restaurant for this location at this time. We are obviously disappointed. We have worked and planned and worked to put Meridian together for years. Clearly, the limping economy is hurting restaurants, especially start-ups. Please know that many people, including the city, are committed to keeping a quality sit down restaurant in Brightwood. We are in negotiations with another local restaurant operator to move into the space with a different concept that, we hope, will be more appealing to the neighborhood. We hope that you support that venture as you supported us. Our target is to have a new restaurant open in Meridian’s space by September.
Thank you for sharing our adventure, however brief.
