Brasserie Belge's last day serving dinner was Saturday, Sept. 29.
Owner Christian Zebier, according to a news release, has decided to close Brasserie Belge to focus on a new venture elsewhere. This follows a change in July, when Zebier brought in Stephane Pierre as executive chef and general manager to oversee the restaurant.
Brasserie Belge has been a popular destination since it opened two years ago, and was selected by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune as one of its 50 Don't Miss Restaurants in 2011.
On its Facebook page, Brasserie Belge posted: "To our friends and supporters: We regret to inform you that Brasserie Belge has closed. We are so very grateful for your support and hope to have the opportunity to see you again soon. Thank you for trusting us as one of your favorite restaurants. We wish you our very best!"
