Owner John McDonnell announced Sunday night on Facebook that Merchant Street will be closing "at the end of the next week."

The Tremont bistro across from Lincoln Park opened in December 2016 at an address that had previously been home to a long line of operators including Ligali’s, Porcelli’s, Bistro on Lincoln Park and Sage Bistro.

"After a crazy week of meeting and looking at numbers my partner and I have decided that we are closing Merchant Street at the end of the next week," he wrote. "We are entertaining changing the venue and have been approached by a few who want to take over this lovely space overlooking Lincoln Park , but it was just not covering its cost as it was. The restaurant world has changed a lot in the last number of years in this city. So many new restaurants, so many new neighborhoods. I appreciate all those who came to love our restaurant, our creative menu and new chef, but it was just not enough to keep going. It was a good run and anyone who knows me understands I would never sacrifice quality over anything. Please come in this week and say hello. Love you all."
