Sad to report that Civilization announced their permanent closure in a message posted to their website. The restaurant had previously decided to close down operations in mid-March shortly after the stay-at-home orders came out.
RIP to one of the best brunches in town.
As I said when we lost Wayward Fox, there will unfortunately be more. This is why I cannot stress enough that we need to support our favorite LOCAL restaurants in whatever capacity they choose to open. Some won't even get the chance because for whatever reason, their model, food, or staff isn't conducive to reopening. But the ones who can are doing all they can to keep their staff and customers safe. So practice courtesy and caution, and support them. You can always get your shitty Panera Bread later.
