After five-plus years at 162 Avenue A, Flinders Lane is shutting down following service on Sunday.

The owners, who hail from Melbourne, Australia, shared the closing message earlier this month on Facebook:

It’s with a heavy heart after much thought and consideration we feel the time has come to close the doors to our New York location.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved our over the past 5 years bringing life to this little space in the East Village day after day creating memories we’ll never forget — the incredible guests, our beloved regulars, the friends we made, the laughs shared and of course all the amazing staff. Without you none of his would have been possible. You truly are rockstars 🙏❤️

Our last service will be Sunday August 26 and we’d love to see you in to raise a glass one last time.

Thanks for the memories NYC

The Australian restaurant drew praise in the Hungry City column at the Times upon opening.

The Flinders Lane location in Stamford, Conn., will remain open.

The space between 10th Street and 11th Street was previously The Beagle ... and the Italian restaurant Orologio before that.

I still miss Orologio, the Italian restaurant that rented that space for years.

Banks made their 3.5 percent though.

Don't feed the banks. USE CASH . Help small businesses stay afloat. 3.5 percent of 1,000,000 yearly sales is $35,000. Three months rent.
