Matt Dobrowloski of ERA Village Green Realtors said the restaurant has been for sale for some time, with two near closings in the last 18 months. “The personal issues became too difficult and after the two failed closings by buyers, they [the owners] decided to take the hit and close,” he said via email.
The restaurant and its contents are for sale along with the liquor license. The property is still owned by an LLC headed by Maurice Flynn, who originally owned the restaurant until selling it years ago.
Dobrowloski said offers are being entertained but there are discussions with a group considering opening an “Asian fusion, Mediterranean restaurant/jazz club, tapas-style facility.”
“We are all devastated and sad at the loss of a friendly welcoming place like Flynn’s. They will be so missed and all wish them well,” said Dobrowloski, a former commissioner on the Parking Authority and Redevelopment Agency who last month was appointed to the Alcohol Beverage Control Board.
