Come December 10, Angelina’s Italian Bistro is going to do their last cover.
The restaurant has been located on Grand Circus Park for a decade. According to a press release, the decision to close the restaurant was made after a favorable agreement was reached between Angelina’s and their landlord.
There aren’t exact future plans for a future new location, but owner Agosta is open to possible “collaborations with other Detroit restaurants which share their vision to serve a diverse customer base with from-scratch food at reasonable prices.
“We owe our success to our dedicated customers who supported and patronized Angelina Italian Bistro in times when it was not easy to operate a restaurant Downtown, they are who we took into consideration when we did our due diligence surveying alternate options and locations,” said Agosta. “It is apparent that the market is close to saturated with new restaurants. Higher rents make it increasingly challenging for us to follow our mission which is being accessible to all customers for many different occasions.”
There will be a customer appreciation event in the coming month, and the restaurant will be donating a portion of its kitchen equipment and supplies to Central United Methodist Church.
The church is building a kitchen to use as an incubator and training space in the food service industry for potential businesses, low income vets and the homeless.
