Amherst German standout Black Forest Adler has announced it will close before the end of February.
Gerhard and Laura Brown opened their authentic German restaurant at 2447 Niagara Falls Blvd. at the beginning of 2012.
Its last day will be Feb. 24, its Facebook page said.
“Owning a restaurant is hard work. Long hours, employee turnover, equipment failures, wage hikes … and little time for a personal life,” the owners shared. “It’s pretty stressful both physically and mentally.”
The owners thanked their loyal customers for their support, noting that many became friends, saying, “we will miss you terribly.”
Reservations will be accepted, and should be made, by calling 564-2447. Gift certificates dated Feb. 1, 2018, or later will be honored, the announcement said. “We look forward to serving you one more time!”
