Earlier on Monday, Eater got a tip that Crofton on Wells closed after service Saturday night. When called, a man at the restaurant who identified himself simply as a "friend," confirmed the restaurant would not be open for service Monday night. Chef/owner Suzy Crofton was unavailable to comment. When probed further about whether Crofton would reopen at all, the friend said they were trying to figure things out.

So it is unclear at this point whether Crofton, which received one Michelin star in 2011, will reopen and the reasons for closing currently have not been given. This story is developing...

UPDATE: Suzy Crofton confirmed that the restaurant in, in fact, closed for good. "Last year we had a good year, but this year has been painfully slow," Crofton wrote in an email. "I decided the best thing to do was to shut my doors and re-concept the restaurant to make if more accessible."
