Chef and owner Matt Gordon announced earlier this month on Facebook that Urban Solace restaurant, in North Park, and Solace & Moonlight Lounge, in Encinitas, will close their doors.

“It is with a heavy heart that I write to you today,” the post read. “We have come to the very difficult decision that Solace Restaurants have run their course here in San Diego. We are so grateful to all of you who have supported us all these years and who helped us by believing in our mission of using the best, most natural and sustainable ingredients possible. It has been an uphill battle for quite some time now, and it’s just time to move on. We love you all and thank you and San Diego in general for the wonderful 12 years that we were able to live out our dreams.”

Urban Solace, located on 30th street, opened in 2006 and Solace & Moonlight Lounge, launched in 2011. According to Eater San Diego, Urban Solace revamped its breakfast and dinner menus just at the end of 2018.
