Barely a week after it celebrated its one-year anniversary, EJ’s Garden Bistro has called it quits.
The Browne’s Addition eatery made the announcement this morning via Twitter, thanking followers for their business.
Staff followed up later in the day with an email to Too Many Cooks, saying the restaurant closed Sunday and “will not reopen.”
EJ's celebrated its one-year anniversary on Sept. 27.
It anchors the northeast corner of the intersection of West Pacific Avenue and South Cannon Street in the heart of Browne’s Addition. The bistro – with its second-story bar, front porch-seating, fire pit and courtyard with strings of light – was open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday and lunch and dinner on weekdays. It was closed on Tuesdays.
According to today’s email to Too Many Cooks, “Mary Moltke, owner, would like to thank all of those who have supported EJ’s over the last year. Mary’s daughter, Heidi Moltke, who relocated from (New York) City, will be taking the business in another direction.”
There’s no word yet on what that direction might be or when that might happen. But EJ’s staff promised to keep Too Many Cooks posted.
