According to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page, the closure comes after a death in the family. That was Randy Linn, who died earlier this month at the age of 60. His son, Jared Linn, was the restaurant’s chef.
“After many discussions as a family, we have decided to not continue business without Randy. Effective immediately,” the post reads.
“We would like to thank all our customers for their support. It has been our pleasure to bring the farm-to-table experience to Moline for the last 6 years. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time, as we continue to grieve the loss of Randy.”
The establishment opened at 1320 5th Ave. in Moline in spring 2014.
