A beloved Burnet Road restaurant and bar has announced last call. Apothecary Cafe & Wine Bar will shutter Saturday, May 27, according to a statement posted on social media.
The neighborhood gem opened in 2009 with elevated comfort food and a respected wine list. A small but meaningful menu from chef Matt Gallagher rotated specials regularly.
"We wanted to thank you sincerely for all the incredible memories we've made and shared together here at Apothecary," reads the note from management. "Our last day will be May 27. We hope to see you before then for another glass of wine, tray of oysters, and bowl of mac and cheese."
Austin diners may not have to wait long for a replacement. "We'll be passing off our space to a new owner who'll be creating a new concept here, one we hope you'll come to love and support," the statement says.
Details on the new venture have not yet been released. Stay tuned for more information about the concept as it become available.
