Austin has suffered another restaurant casualty. Sunday, July 17, was the last day of service at Burnet Road's 416 Bar & Grille. It was open less than a year-and-a-half.
The announcement of the sudden shudder was posted to Facebook on Saturday morning. According to the brief statement, the restaurant has been sold to an undisclosed party. CultureMap reached out to the owners, who declined to comment on the specifics.
In early 2015, father-son duo John and Colin Jurey opened 416 Bar & Grille as a neighborhood spot for North Central Austin. John is a restaurant industry veteran, and Colin previously worked at 24 Diner.
In its brief tenure, the Burnet Road eatery wooed diners with all-day breakfast and comfort classics at an approachable price. It was also nominated for Best New Restaurant in our 2015 CultureMap Tastemaker Awards.
The surprise shutter of 416 Bar & Grille is the latest in a string of restaurant closures that has swept across Austin this year. Nearby Fork & Vine, which won the Best New Restaurant award in 2015, closed last month.
