Restaurant Grace Closed (Updated)

Posted By on Tue, Dec 14, 2010 at 3:19 PM

Ben Vaughn has issued a press release announcing his decision to close Restaurant Grace.

Au Fond will remain open.

The release reads in part:

I need a creative break. I want to learn, evolve, and recapture my food focus. The demands of this restaurant, at this pace, it is impossible to continue. We have seen incredible support over the last year and half, but with our menu, food standards, service standards and economic problems we didn’t want to slowly phase out. I thought it would be best if we left on a high note.

Restaurant Grace, named after Vaughn's daughter, opened in September 2009.

UPDATED: The Reef has also closed.

From the Reef's phone message: "We ask that you please support your local restaurants."
