Apothecary Cafe and Wine Bar, the cafe and wine bar along Burnet Road, is closing, according to its Facebook page. Owner Niraj Mehdiratta notes that a new owner will take over the space, turning it into a new restaurant. The last day of service will be held on Saturday, May 27.

The stylish restaurant was known for its killer wine list, paired with a variety of dishes, from pasta, oysters, charcuterie, to a strong dessert selection from executive chef Matt Gallagher. Mehdiratta opened Apothecary in November 2009.

Burnet Road went through a restaurant boom within the past couple of years, with the debuts of Bonhomie from Philip Speer, the relocated Barley Swine from Bryce Gilmore, Bufalina’s second location,

There’s also been a recent burst of restaurant and bar shutters: South Lamar Italian restaurant Cantine from the same owners of Asti, downtown rum bar and island-inspired restaurant Isla, and boozy doughnut shop Gourdough’s downtown location (though it’ll relocate to, fittingly, Burnet Road).
