"We have loved being in Durham over the past five years, and this is not an announcement we anticipated making when we temporarily closed March 16, due to the Governor’s COVID-19 dine-in restrictions. However, our lease was up for renewal, and the revised lease terms were not something we could commit to given the uncertain times we find ourselves in," owners said via a press release.
Owners say they are open to a new Durham space if the conditions are right.
“We are very thankful to the Durham community for their love and support over the past five years.” co-owner Gonza Salamanca said. “To say we were disappointed at the lack of flexibility, and proposed rent increase by the landlord, would be an understatement,”
