Residents of West Highland will have to get their oyster fix in another part of town; the windows at the Highland Pacific Restaurant and Oyster Bar are covered with paper and the phone isn't being answered. A message on the the neighborhood seafood joint's Facebook page, though, assures us that it's just a temporary closure.
The Facebook message, posted on October 7, reads:
Highland Pacific is closed due to an exciting remodel of our space! While we wish we could continue to serve you delicious food, drinks, and good vibes, we thought it best to shut down during construction, for safety's sake. Thanks for all the support throughout the years! Look forward to seeing you soon! -HiPac Staff
We'll keep you up to date as soon as we know when the restaurant expects to reopen.
