We have word that the fabulous restaurant on Glenwood South Enoteca Vin has closed for business. Employees knew it was coming but didn’t know it would be so soon. It was thought that the restaurant would close in the next month but surprisingly today was their final day of serving food. Enoteca Vin could not be contacted for comment.
Vin was very well known in the area for its Sunday brunch, wine selection and was considered one of the top 25 restaurants in the triangle.. I want to believe this isn’t true. Maybe it’s all a dream and the economy really isn’t that bad. It also comes only hours after Joe’s Place in the Warehouse District announced they would also be closing this week. These are both very sad losses for downtown Raleigh as both were beloved institutions in their own categories.
Dean over at Varmint Bites alluded to this last week with Carolina Wine Company’s closure, which is owned by Chrish Peel who is part owner of Vin.
