Restaurant Alert: Downtown Bistro Closes

Add another eatery to the list of restaurant closings this year.

A couple months ago we learned about the possible closing of downtown Macon's Lemongrass Thai Bistro. Lemongrass owner Gary Schechterle announced that he would be closing his downtown eatery that anchored the corner alley on Cherry Street for well over 7 years.

Now, after 7 years, the lights have gone out at Lemongrass Thai Bistro.

The Cherry Street eatery has called it quits after the owner decided not to renew its lease with Theater Macon, according to a post on the restaurant owners Facebook page.  Patrons were notified that there were still a few weeks left for fans to get their pad Thai and green curry fix. Schechterle, who owns the restaurant planned to close the doors on June 26th, but decided to serve his patrons their last brunch at Lemongrass this past Sunday (May 22, 2016) and then locked the doors and closed the restaurant for good.
