Relish, an eatery that specialized in gluten-free dining, closed its doors Tuesday, owner Scott Guman confirmed.
A sign posted on the front door read, "We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their support."
Guman, who had taken over the restaurant in mid-August, said in an email the business was not profitable. He had taken a chance at being his own boss following a layoff from Mack Trucks, where he worked 23 years.
"I'm sorry to see the business close," he wrote about Relish, "because I really felt we were serving a population that was not being served anywhere else in the [Lehigh] Valley."
The note posted on the restaurant door also extended an apology for any inconvenience.
