Notable closings in September include Polished Tavern downtown; owner Cezary Grosfeld says he shuttered the place to focus on opening more of his fast-casual Polish concept, Pierogies Factory. On South University Boulevard, 730 South exited after an eighteen-year run in the Bonnie Brae neighborhood.
And then there's Tavernetta, which shone briefly and brightly at Union Station before an unfortunate kitchen fire forced the Italian eatery (brought to you by the Frasca folks) to close after just a few days in business. We're reminded of the 2011 fire that closed Oak at Fourteenth for nine months shortly after that restaurant opened and hope that Tavernetta's recovery is as successful. Tavernetta hopes to reopen in November.
