Savory Restaurant and Lounge owners announced they were closing with a Facebook posting for customers on Saturday.

The restaurant, 1314 S. Grand Blvd., opened two years ago after extensive remodeling of the former Blockbuster video store. Saturday night’s dinner was the last meal served there.

Owner Mike Schneider, of Spokane Restaurant Equipment, said he was thankful to everyone who supported the restaurant over the past two years and that he felt terrible about closing Savory, when reached by phone on Monday.

“It was beautiful. I just fell in love with what we did there,” he said. “It wasn’t profitable. Blame tough economic conditions; we just had to do it,” he said.

He declined to go into further detail about the reasons Savory closed.

The restaurant fixtures and equipment are for sale with an assumable lease at that location.
