52 Bistro is no more. The restaurant in the two-story building behind Mittie's on North Main Street could not keep up its operations.
The location has served as a coffee shop and as another restaurant before the owners of Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub got involved.
Read General Manager Geoff Kokoszka's letter to customers posted online at the restaurant's website:
Dear Loyal Customers
Thank you for all your support of our restaurant. The past two years have been full of challenges, but also full of blessings, as we came to know and enjoy our customers, our friends. Unfortunately, we have not been able to sustain a self-supporting establishment, though we did try very hard.
Effective immediately, 52 Bistro has closed its doors. Please visit us at Olde Blind Dog in Milton or Brookhaven. You will find the same good food, fine spirits and caring staff.
We regret having to take this action.
