As one New Bedford restaurant launched this week, another closed its doors.  The Urban Grille announced on their Facebook page that they have closed for good.

It is with a very heavy heart and much sadness that I have to announce the closing of the Urban Grille.I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the wonderful patrons and friends I have made since we opened in September of 2012. A special thanks to my Urban Grille family for believing in me and the Urban Grille, without their support I don't know if I could have made it through this very challenging year both professionally and personally.. This experience has been like no other and I will never forget it. Thank you again for all of your support.  --Mario Pinho, Owner

Pinho also commented that he had found himself in a bad deal with his business partner, "There's an entire back story to this that involved my former partner that I can't get into publicly."

Pinho says he's reached out to other restaurants in the city to see if they'll honor gift cards that have already been purchased to the Urban Grille.
