ELM Restaurant Group (Easy Tiger, 24 Diner, Italic, and the upcoming Irene’s) announced today that Arro, their French concept, will be closing shop after dinner service on Friday, Feb. 5. According to a release, all staff will have the opportunity to work at other ELM eateries.

The site will be developed into a new Bridget Dunlap concept. The “Queen of Rainey” behind such bars as Lustre Pearl, Clive Bar, Bar 96, Container Bar, and the new Burn pizza bar, offered ELM a deal that “would provide the least risk and highest return for our investors,” according to ELM founding partner Scott Hentschel.

To say goodbye, Arro is going out in style. Today through Friday, they invite patrons to drink them dry with half price wines curated by beverage director/master sommelier Craig Collins and a special $5-15 menu from chef Andrew Curren.
