In a post made on Facebook last week, Lombardo’s announced that a lethal combination of Covid-related staffing issues and an unrenewable lease was forcing their closure after nearly five years. While the intention was to continue serving until Wednesday and running specials on wine to reduce the inventory, a follow up post made on Sunday announced that the restaurant was immediately and permanently closed. The owners thanked their staff who stayed on until the final day, and the loyal customers who did all they could to support the restaurant. The Reader sends our very best wishes to the entire team.
