One of the area’s most esteemed eateries – Krause Dining in Lawrence – will close its doors early next year. That according to an email from the Krauses, who were unavailable for comment at the time of this posting.
That said, here’s the email”
“There is a season for all things…
We have truly felt appreciated and supported from our customers – some of you for many years now. We are grateful for the friendships we have made, and so it with mixed feelings that we annouce that we are no longer going to be serving from our house as of January 11, 2010 (which is Robert’s 50th birthday). Like so many things in life, the best parts of working and living in the same place are also the hardest parts as well. So, in order to gain back a part our family life, we have decided to pusue other interests in food operations.
“We are not going away – we will continue to operate and improve The Burger Stand (at Dempsey’s), we have a new restaurant opening early next year at 801 Massachusetts serving casual Latin American food, our cookbook will be published next year, and we will teach cooking classes as well.
