Popular Lawrenceville Restaurant Closing Next Month

Cure will shut doors, give way to online charcuterie company.

A popular, award-winning restaurant is closing its doors next month. Chef Justin Severino says Cure in Lawrenceville will close March 23, after a run of more than seven years.

According to Cure's website , the restaurant is closing to clear retail and production space for Severino's newest business venture, "Salty Pork Bits ," an online charcuterie company. The new company will allow customers across the country to order Severino's charcuterie.

But don't despair if you need to get into Cure one more time, you can still book reservations through March 23 online . Additionally, Severino will continue to run Morcilla , Cure's sister restaurant in Lawrenceville.

The Post-Gazette reports Severino intends to keep the staff at Cure employed at Morcilla, the new production facility and an upcoming restaurant -- Larder at East End Brewing Co.

Plans for Larder include a full-on pub and brewery, an 80-seat space with a beer-friendly menu. The Post-Gazette reports it is expected to open in April in May.
