The Golden, a downtown restaurant located on the first floor of Ash Skyline Plaza, is closing after less than two years in business.

The restaurant opened in June 2016 and hosted a block party to celebrate its one-year anniversary this summer.

The restaurant’s owners declined a request for comment from Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly, but they shared a farewell statement on their Facebook page Nov. 7 thanking patrons for their service.

“For those of you who follow Fort Wayne food news you already know that we are closing this Sunday. It is sad for everyone involved in our restaurant the past year and few months. We want to personally thank any guest who became familiar with our staff, any guest who gave us a shot over his or her normal dining destination, and any guest who felt comfortable enough with our establishment to feel at home when you were here,” the statement read.

According to the statement, the restaurant will close Nov. 12.
