Word on the Street (and in the Sun): Stonewood Grill in Gainesville has closed

Based on a news report in today's Gainesville Sun, Stonewood Grill has closed suddenly. The Sun reported that there was a dispute over rent that had gone unpaid and that restaurant equipment was seen being removed from the restaurant on Sunday.

I have long enjoyed their food, particularly in their early days in Gainesville. They sought to be innovative at using fresh, local ingredients in creative ways and we had a number of interesting dishes there. For awhile, they even produced a magazine about their wares that was outstanding. The room itself was embracing and sophisticated with dark, warm words with stone accents.

I hope some restauranteur with same dedication takes over this building soon. I am sad to see Stonewood Grill go.
