Clarendon’s Citizen Burger Bar is now closed, per a sign on the door.
“Our time with you has come to an end,” reads the sign on the front doors of the restaurant at 1051 N. Highland Street. “We want to thank you so much for visiting us and supporting us for the last 5 years!”
The notice said its last day was Sunday. Phone calls to the eatery went unanswered, and the number appeared to be disconnected.
The restaurant posted a copy of the sign on its Facebook Friday, noting it was “a sad day for us here in Clarendon.”
Inside the restaurant, chairs could be seen stacked up between cleaning materials last night (Monday). The unlit sign of Mister Days, which closed in April across the street, reflected in the burger joint’s windows.
Owner Anderson McClure told ARLnow.com before the restaurant opened that his goal was to “broaden people’s horizons when it comes to simple, ‘classic American’ fare.”
The closing adds to the agony this week for local connoisseurs of the bovine, who are mourning the impending closure of Courthouse staple Ray’s the Steaks.
