    So, So, Sorry to hear of this. They did a fantastic job of turning out great food for all, but especially for folks that had gluten, vegan regimens and so tasty besides. Service was always a pleasure. Their wine maker dinners were good too. I will really miss it!

        I mentioned it on our fb page, and here is what I said, FYI….
        I am NOT at all happy that Spiritland Bistro closed. I had interactions with Joanne and knew her to be a lovely, heartfelt person. A venture of this kind is such a monumental effort and its demise, for whatever reason, is a crushing of someone’s vision. That could never bring me any kind of joy.

    Maybe it will reopen as the great little German restaurant that used to be here…anyone remember the name?

      That was the fabulous “Heidelberg Inn”…..
      Who knows what will happen, maybe former owner would consider reopening one more time!!!
