Bad news from the Twin Cities dining world: Corner Table is closing.

The innovative eatery from Thomas Boemer and Nick Rancone will close its doors for the final time at 4537 Nicollet Avenue at the end of July, according to the Eater Twin Cities.

Offering "Low Country cuisine" using "French techniques," the pair won acclaim for the restaurant that started out 4257 Nicollet, which is now home to one of their other restaurants, Revival, before moving three blocks down the road.

In 2016 and 2017, Boemer was a semifinalist in the James Beard Foundation Awards for "Best Chef Midwest" for his work at Corner Table, and was also named Eater Twin Cities' "Chef of the Year" two years running in 2014 and 2015.

As well as opening two Revivals, the pair have most recently collaborated on another celebrated restaurant, In Bloom at the Keg and Case Market in St. Paul.

Corner Table offers two dining experiences for customers: a $50 prix-fixe three-course menu, with the option of adding sharing plates for the table, and a $145 "I'll Have What She's Having" chef's tasting menu.

Speaking to the Pioneer Press, Rancone said that they were looking to "make some changes that we feel will be able to connect with the neighborhood and dining community that we were just not connecting with."

There's no word yet on what they will be replacing Corner Table with.
