A well-known downtown Zionsville restaurant is closing at the end of the year.
Patrick’s Kitchen and Drinks recently announced on its Facebook page that its last day of operations will be Saturday.
“We had a plan for the restaurant, but sadly, it is not to be. We are so grateful for our loyal guests....thank you for your support, encouragement, love, and patronage,” the Facebook post read.
The restaurant opened in June 2007 in the Boone Village Shopping Center and moved to the Brick Street Inn at 175 S. Main St. in December 2011. Lunch and dinner were served daily and brunch was offered on weekends.
Owners Patrick Mullen and Beth Dickerson will continue to operate Patrick’s Smokehouse Kitchen at Danny Boy Beer Works in Carmel.
The eatery in the Village of West Clay opened in May and offers a menu with pulled pork nachos, baby back ribs and smokehouse cheddar burgers. Two smokers are used for the barbeque.
According to a Facebook post by Patrick’s, the Carmel location could serve brunch by the end of January.
