Downtown Restaurant to Close After 24 Years
Two Sisters owners say they are sad to say goodbye.
UPDATE: 2 Sisters is now closed.
2 Sisters, a downtown mainstay known for its made-from-scratch sauerkraut, pierogies and stuffed cabbage (among other Polish fare) will close its doors later this month.
The restaurant's management announced the closing on its Facebook page; Patch confirmed the news in person on Tuesday.
"It is with great sadness that we are announcing that we will be closing June 24th at 7p.m. permanently," the Facebook statement said. "Due to declining health of the owner and due to the construction that has crippled our business, we feel this is the time to close permanently.
"We would like to thank all our valued customers over the last 24 years ... and as we say goodbye we are very saddened!
"Thank you for the last 24 years!"
In a later post, the management commented that business has been down 75 percent since the Main Street Makeover project began in April.
In December, Patch told the story of how Two Sisters came to be in In Downtown Rochester's Polish Restaurant, Owner is Living the American Dream, which was reproduced on The Huffington Post for its "Dispatches" series on life in America.
