Lemon Hill Shuts Its Doors

lemon-hill-bar-400Lemon Hill at 25th and Aspen Streets in Fairmount closed suddenly last night. The bar and restaurant from the Franklin Mortgage team came onto the scene back in early 2012 with Mitch Prensky in the kitchen. Prensky didn’t last too long and there always seemed to be movement in and out of the kitchen and management of the establishment.

General manager Aaron Siak posted the following on Facebook:

Lemon Hill will actually be closed forever. It was good seeing a bunch of familiar faces over the past several weeks. Even though Lemon Hill ultimately failed, when we were on, we were one of the best spots in town. And I believe that. I appreciate the effort of our team, working hard, and knowing the difficulty of the climb. Thank you to our staff and all of our guests over the past few years. Cheers!

Original employee Keith Raimondi has put the call out to hospitality pros who might be looking to hire. So if you are, look up Raimondi on Facebook and give him a shout.
