The Riverwalk Restaurant in downtown Brooklyn has closed for good after one full year of operation, its owners announced Tuesday.
Owner David Schulz said he had hoped the restaurant would serve up great meals for his customers for a long time, but the restaurant is closing due to a lack of funds.
The restaurant was open for just over two months last year.
It was great. “
We did some very nice work in the last two years.
It was great.
But we were just not going to have the money to stay open.”
Schulz said that as he had the restaurant open, he had to make some hard decisions.
He said he has a family and was going to take care of his kids.
Schulz, who has a history of alcohol abuse, said he is looking to reopen other restaurants in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
The restaurant has opened a second location in New Jersey, but has yet to announce any plans to reopen in New York.
The closure comes just days after the owners of the Riverwalk and Riverwalk East restaurants in Manhattan announced they were closing.
The owners, Fred and Mary Oster, said they were taking a break from operating their restaurants in their hometowns.
