Downtown Watkinsville restaurants Jacob’s Pizza and Mirko Pasta are now permanently closed.
The Facebook page of Jacob’s Pizza said in a May post that the restaurant would close that location on May 31.
Just two weeks prior to that, Jacob’s announced on its Colbert Facebook page about that location’s closing.
“Closing a restaurant is never easy, despite how often it happens in this business,” the social media post said. “We've enjoyed getting to know all of you!”
Mirko’s closed without much announcement last Monday. The next day, a sign announcing an auction of Mirko’s restaurant equipment had been placed on the restaurant’s front door.
Atlanta-based Bell Auctioneers hosted the auction of Mirko’s equipment on June 6.
