Richmond BizSense Reporting that Spoonbread Bistro is Closed for Good

The neighborhood I’m sure will be watching to see what new restaurant pops up in this spot.

The popular Fan spot, Spoonbread Bistro (2526 Floyd Ave) had closed down at the start of the pandemic in March of 2020 and never reopened.

The restaurant had initially been in wait-and-see mode for a few months but by the summer of 2020 had decided to close the book on the Fan location, a decision helped along by the fact that it was nearing the end of the five-year lease it signed in 2016.

It had continued to pay the rent in the meantime and recently made its exit official by agreeing with its landlord to an early end of the lease.

“Basically, the lease was going to be up soon anyway. So, we just decided to focus on the newer location in Short Pump,” Chef Greg Dunlap said, referring to sister restaurant Spoonbread Bistro Deux on Lauderdale Drive.
