A bad few day for the Minneapolis restaurant scene just got worse Tuesday, when it emerged that North Loop favorite Haute Dish has closed down.

The news was first reported by Best of the Best MN, and the restaurant's Open Table listing has the eatery as being "permanently closed."

It has since been confirmed by owner David Walters that Monday was the last day of business after seven years on North Washington Avenue.

"After seven years of serving the local community, we are closing our doors effective immediately," he said, the Star Tribune reports. "We are grateful for the opportunity to have served our customers with a unique take on Minnesota cuisine."

The restaurant was one of the fore-runners of Minneapolis' revitalized modern dining scene, with the CityPages saying head chef Landon Schoenefeld taking "dishes you've seen a hundred times before and turning them into one-in-a-million creations."

This led to menu items including mac n' cheese (with king crab and truffle oil), pork and beans ("not from a can"), and its take on quintessential Minnesota with the short-rib packed "Tater Tot Hautedish."

The closure comes just days after chef Erick Harcey announced he'd be closing north Minneapolis favorite Victory 44. That was followed by news on Tuesday that Loring Pasta Bar in Dinkytown had also closed, though will reopen as the Loring Restaurant and Pharmacy Bar.
