Columbia, MO, Restaurant Closes

Village Wine and Cheese has closed.

This is a shame and is merely the latest in a series of downtown Columbia restaurants recently closing their doors (e.g. Trattoria, Classy's). In the above referenced Tribune article Ms. Fluesmeier nevertheless expresses optimism regarding the downtown restaurant landscape, as does this piece recently published in the Missourian:

Columbia is a great dining town and hopefully we will see some great new restaurants opening in the near future.

  1. I was sorry to read that, too. I've been wondering if part of their problem was a lack of identity. Their food was excellent, but by retaining the name from when the business was a deli and wine shop, I think a lot of people were confused about what they were trying to be.
