There's yet another change in the Uptown dining scene, with Libertine suddenly closing the doors to its restaurant and rooftop bar on Sunday.

"Thank you to all who worked, supported and enjoyed themselves at the Uptown Cafeteria and Libertine over the past ten years," the restaurant said on its Facebook page Sunday.

"Unfortunately we have closed our doors for good."

There was no reason given for the closure nor if anything will be replacing it, but it brings to end five years of Libertine at the northeast corner of the Calhoun Square complex.

Before that it was the Uptown Cafeteria, both businesses run by Parasole Restaurant Holdings, which also owns Twin Cities eateries including Pittsburgh Blue, Salut, Manny's Steakhouse, Good Earth, and Burger Jones.

Its closure represents another blow to Calhoun Square, which earlier this year saw arguably its most notable tenant, Famous Dave's, shut down.

Also this week, New Bohemia announced it is closing its Uptown location, while in nearby Lyn-Lake, the long-running restaurant It's Greek to Me shut its doors after 37 years.

The New Bohemia location however is reportedly being filled by a slimmed-down version of Famous Dave's, it was reported last week.
