Clyde, the modern wine bar and restaurant that took over the former home of Le Central, is no more. Named after the French bulldog that owners Christopher Fehlinger and Jon Lipshutz own, the business located at 112 E 8th Avenue announced the closure in an email to its friends and family list.
I am sad to share the news that Clyde Restaurant is closing after tonight (Saturday, August 19). We really gave it our best. I’ll be posting more details on our Facebook page tomorrow.
Also tomorrow we will be cooking off the remaining food for friends. Stop by in the late afternoon. We’re also selling off the leftover wine if you are interested.
On Tuesday we’ll be selling off retail store inventory cheap.
Thanks for having been a friend to Clyde and we hope to keep you posted of any new ventures after we sleep for a week.
Chris, Jon, Clyde and Dudley
Clyde was an ambitious venture. It opened in an iconic restaurant space, one that was a French restaurant for 34 years. After a remodel that brightened up the multiple rooms, it launched as a wine bar, restaurant, and design shop. With friendly service and a fun menu, Clyde attempted to draw the Cap Hill and Golden Triangle crowds to lukewarm reception. The crew at Clyde is planning on liquidating the design shop this week. There’s no word on what will happen with the space now.
