College eateries have taken a hit lately. The Haven, Norm’s, and now Majestic Grill are among those closed or soon to be closing. A favorite among the college crowd for its late night bites and all-day breakfasts, Majestic Grill’s rent has skyrocketed in the past few years.
Owner Rick Stender says that the close is also due to the landlord’s desire for Majestic to serve alcohol. Stender said it would take away from the concept his parents originally envisioned when they opened the restaurant. He’s currently weighing his options, but will definitely be opening another restaurant. Stay tuned for another venture and in the meantime, have one last meal of Majestic Grill Asian Touch before the lease ends on December 10.
