Scott Dolich has announced that the Bent Brick, his casual neighborhood restaurant has closed for good.
Friends of The Bent Brick,
It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing The Bent Brick’s closure on Saturday, July 2nd. Since its opening in 2011, my goal for The Bent Brick has been to create a warm and relaxed space where great experiences were a common occurrence, shared by the staff, our customers, suppliers and peers. Despite a fantastically talented and dedicated staff over the years, I was unable to create a consistently strong identity for The Bent Brick, and as a result our financials suffered.
Even though coming to this decision has been incredibly difficult, I feel honored and grateful for my staff’s dedication and the support of this community. Over the next few days I will be focusing on our current personnel, working to find them future employment. I will greatly miss seeing you all at The Bent Brick, but I hope you will continue to join us in our culinary adventures at Park Kitchen.
The Bent Brick was a bit of an oddity for me. I loved the location, the building and the staff. The patio was a great place to while away an afternoon. But the food just never did it for me – it was fine, but nothing really set it apart from the competition. Still, I will miss going by for the excellent cocktails.
