charred 51 update:


WARNING: SUPER LONG, SUPER SAD EMOTIONAL POST WITH A SMALL SILVER LINING AT THE END

Today, we at Charred 51 Artisan Bar & Bistro of downtown Galesburg would like to inform the local community of the emotional decision to open our doors for the last time on Thursday, November 11th

After much sentimental consideration, the Charred 51 building has been purchased by a St. Louis area family in hopes of opening an authentic Italian restaurant after the first of the new year.

This was not planned and is still a lot for me to wrap my head around, but we do feel this is the best business decision on what could be a very grim horizon. A closure, and not on our terms is a very real possibility for so many small businesses in this industry. "Hard work, blood, sweat & tears" doesn't even begin to cover the amount of effort this project has taken over the last 3+ years.

I do however feel very fortunate not to be having to close our doors due to lack of business or community support. As we know our local community really is trying their best to support local small businesses because they are vital to our local culture and because they are owned by our neighbors, friends, & family.

This happens to be month of our two year anniversary and while I feel sad to have this chapter in my life cut short, I do find joy in that this new family loves what we've built as much as I do.

WITH THAT BEING SAID...

We will REOPEN for INDOOR DINING this FRIDAY (Nov.6th) with regular business hours THROUGH THURSDAY, NOV. 11TH, Following our sanitation guidelines from before of course, as well as a few added ones for the safety of our staff and patrons.

*We will be taking reservations and appreciate your cooperation in making them when possible.

 *These dates may be subject to change

So once again, through and through...

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your patience, love & support over the past few years. It has forever changed my life. We hope to see as many of you as possible before our last day... 

but please don't make me ugly cry at your table on your last visit.

I love y'all so much

Thank you,

Elyse Quarterman

Owner/GM
