The owners of Clementine in Brunswick have announced they're closing Oct. 20. Here is the written statement they sent to media outlets Thursday:
"Dana and Nancy Robicheaw regret to announce the closing of Clementine Restaurant after nearly five wonderful years of service.
We have decided to dedicate more time to our family life so that we may both participate in the lives of our children.
We have many people to thank; including our staff and the countless patrons who have supported us throughout the years. It has been a pleasure to have our restaurant in midcoast Maine; especially in Brunswick, as it continues to become a dining destination.
We encourage everyone to dine with us one last time during our remaining days. Please call 207.721.9800 to reserve Wednesday-Saturday."Tweet
