Black Pearl, a contemporary American restaurant that opened its doors in 2005, closed its doors at 1529 S Pearl Street. The block has recently seen the reemergence of Ototo and the shutter of Session Kitchen, a location that will soon become Que Bueno Suerte. In the coming months Gaia Bistro will also close as the lot is being redeveloped into commercial office space.
The Black Pearl space will return to the scene as a yet-to-be-revealed concept later this year. Here's the note posted on the door of the restaurant as well as on its website:
Black Pearl is changing... change is good!
After 11 great years, we will be closed for a few weeks, while we revamp the restaurant for our new food & drink gathering spot.
In partnership with friends, neighbors, and our fellow local restaurateur, we have an exciting new concept for our location.
We look forward to our new endeavor and continuing to offer all of our friends a friendly, welcoming home away from home.
We want to thank you for a great ride and will relish the memories of Black Pearl forever!
