CINCINNATI — After nearly a quarter century, Teller’s of Hyde Park will serve its last dish on Aug. 31.
Brendan Hurley, on behalf of Teller’s business partners, made the announcement Wednesday on the restaurant’s official Facebook page.
"It has been an honor to serve the Hyde Park and Cincinnati community for the past 25 years and impact many lives,” Hurley wrote. "We have been privileged to share everything from engagements and wedding dinners, to friends meeting on a night out or a passerby looking for a comfortable experience.”
Teller’s first opened in the former Hyde Park Savings and Loan building at 2710 Erie Ave. on Oct. 14, 1995. The two-story restaurant boasted 30 beers on tap and eclectic cuisine at an affordable price.
"Since our opening, we have had one thousand seven hundred and eighty-two employees,” Hurley stated. "They have provided the work ethic and backbone to make Tellers (sic) a great dining experience.”
After Teller’s closes a local, unnamed hospitality group plans to open a new concept restaurant in the building that sits on Hyde Park Square.
"In closing, know that we never doubted ourselves and always strived for perfection and settled for excellence,” Hurley stated at the end of the restaurant’s announcement. "That has been our goal and we feel we have attained it. I thank our patrons for their continued support and our employees for their dedication and work ethic. It has been my privilege."
