Openings and Closings

Has PL8 Kitchen Closed For Good?

Clean Plate Charlie has learned that PL8 Kitchen has closed.

The former Himmarshee Bar & Grill changed its name and format about a year ago to PL8, which featured reworked and elevated bar favorites like pizzas and chicken wings.

PL8's Facebook

page has not been updated since September 1 and a call to the restaurant

during normal business hours was unanswered.

We passed by this morning around 10:30 and, while there were still tables and chairs, there was no activity or people prepping for a Friday afternoon lunch service.


Calls to several neighboring restaurants confirmed that the restaurant had closed this past Monday, but that there may be plans for it to reopen.

Clean Plate Charlie will update this post as we receive further information.
