Solstice Is Second Restaurant In The Village At Newtown Shopping Center To Close Its Doors This Year

Solstice Is Second Restaurant In The Village At Newtown Shopping Center To Close Its Doors This Year | Newtown News of Interest |

After two years of operation, interrupted by a lengthy closure during the pandemic, Solstice Restaurant has closed its doors in the Village at Newtown Shopping Center.


The 9,245 square-foot restaurant opened in March 2020 offering hyper-seasonal menus that changed with the seasons.


In a message posted on its Facebook page, the owners wrote, "Over the past two years, Solstice has built a community of friends, family and loyal diners. When we opened our doors, we set out to provide seasonally-forward food that was thoughtfully prepared, and dedicated to quality, craft and freshness.


"If you have followed along in our journey, you know that we celebrate the season as much as we celebrate its change. Today, with a heavy heart, we're stepping into that change as we share the news of our closing.


Mary Wlodarczyk Sanginiti had this advice for the restaurant owners: "Open in a location outside of that shopping center. The traffic and parking are horrendous. We avoid all the restaurants there."


Solstice is the second restaurant to close this year at the Village. Earlier this year Friends Bar and Grill/Dolce Carini closed after its lease expired.


"Despite my best attempts over the last three years to secure a new lease, the landlord refused to give us a new one," wrote the owners of Friends on its FaceBook page. "This necessitated the closure of the business as there were no other options available."
