Brats and beer chain New Bohemia has closed down its original restaurant in the Twin Cities.
The restaurant at 233 E. Hennepin Ave. shuttered over the weekend, with the company confirming to BMTN that its time in Northeast has come to an end.
It was the first of several locations opened by the "Wurst and Bierhaus," welcoming diners in 2012 around the corner from another famous sausage purveyor, Kramarczuk's.
"The Northeast location of New Bohemia has unfortunately closed permanently," a spokesman said.
"We came to a natural ending point with our lease coming to an end. We had 8 wonderful years in the location however running a business in that location no longer made sense for us.
'All of our wonderful staff were offered positions within the company at the other New Bohemia locations and we look forward to continued success and growth with the brand."
New Bohemia has four other locations, according to its website, in Lake Street, Minneapolis, as well as St. Paul, Golden Valley and Roseville.
It did have a Mankato location that closed last fall, while a location in Eagan has also shut down.
