We Get Letters: So Much for Microwaved Tapas

Rebecca writes in:

I am a HUGE fan of Tavern on the Lake. I like to go there to watch football games, to enjoy live music, to enjoy the great drink specials, I know the bar tender by name, my boyfriend and I can walk back to his house from the Tavern - so no need to drive… I regularly crave the nachos from their menu - oh - so, so yummy! We really hoped that these owners were here to stay - but, well, the windows now have drawn blinds! It looks like the TVs and all alcohol has been removed! On Saturday when I last walked by there was a big bin of unopened mail in front of their store front. What happened? We had no warning on this one.
Well, the restaurant has been for sale since at least February, and according to the listing at the time, the Tavern folks were leasing. So either a) someone bought the property or b) the restaurant owners didn't want to go through the slow winter season, when foot traffic around Lake Anne Plaza begins resembling that in an East German park ca. 1975, with a pending sale hanging over their heads.

Anyone know for sure? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Heard it was foreclosure. Either way, they closed for sure about a week and a half ago, getting rid of all the alcohol on their last night.
