Mid-Atlantic-inspired restaurant Delaware and Hudson will be closing its doors at the end of November after more than four years of operation.
The restaurant, located at 135 North 5th St., announced the closure in an Instagram post on Monday, stating their last day of service will be November 25.
The restaurant’s announcement emphasized how proud the team is of their accomplishments in the time the restaurant has been open.
“We are so grateful that we have had the opportunity to feed you and enjoy your company, as we hope you have enjoyed ours,” the Instagram post reads.
Chef and owner Patti Jackson first opened the intimate 38-seat restaurant in May 2014, introducing Delaware and Hudson’s signature prix-fixe menu of farm-to-table Mid-Atlantic cuisine to the Williamsburg scene.
Jackson’s hot pretzel rolls and green tomato pie made it quickly become a New York Times Critic’s Pick. In 2016, the restaurant expanded, adding a 35-seat tavern next-door.
Delaware and Hudson’s announcement stated that there was no one place to blame for the closure.
“It seems clear, however, that given the current state of the restaurant business in New York City, the labor market, the L train stoppage, the inexorable changes in our neighborhood and our own personal changes that we cannot go on as we have,” the restaurant owners wrote.
Before closing its doors for the last time, Delaware and Hudson will be hosting a four course Thanksgiving celebration on November 22.
