It’s with deep regret that I share tomorrow, Saturday, June 11, will be the last night of service at Buckminster’s. It was an extremely tough decision, but one that had to be made no matter how much we hoped and worked to thrive here. We’re proud of what we set out to accomplish in this great neighborhood. I’m extremely grateful for all the hard work from our dedicated team, especially Chef Rob Marzinsky, and they’ll always have a place within our restaurant group, should they want it. Chef Marzinsky is one of the most talented and driven chefs I know, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to work with him.We sincerely thank all our friends, family, neighbors and fans who ate and drank with us over the last six months – their support is deeply appreciated.We will continue to do what we do best at our 13th Street Kitchens family of restaurants – and we hope to see you there.– Michael Pasquarello
