Facebook is lighting up with news that Mistral, the French restaurant on the Market, is closing after 25 years.

A quick call to the restaurant confirmed that this might be true — sort of.

The proprietors tell us that there is someone interested in buying the restaurant, but that there’s nothing to write about yet.

It looks like they’ll be closing down in the meantime. Stay tuned for more details.
