Lure Bistro (38040 Third St.), has been a staple in DTW for 22 years. It’s been through a few owners and is currently owned by David Pike. The restaurant was previously owned by Jaret Havanchak who had an amazing run and turned Lure Bistro into one of the best restaurants in Lake County. It was known for the best patio, best sushi and their famous crab crusted grouper.
There is already a deal in the works to get new ownership in and get the location up and running. Details of this new ownership will be given when the time is right. From our understanding, new ownership will consist of previous employees over the years. This has not been confirmed as of yet but the rumor mills have already started.
A message from the owner.
It is with a great deal of difficulty and sadness the current ownership of Lure Bistro announces that effective 1/1/2020 the restaurant will be closed for business.
The Lure has been a staple in the Downtown Willoughby restaurant world for 20+ years and over that time we have had so many amazing guests that have become regulars and huge supporters of what we do. Past and present owners have appreciated the incredible people that made Lure part of their lives, whether celebrating special events, family dinners or weekly happy hours, you all were the reason we did what we did and were afforded the opportunity to be a part of the Downtown Willoughby Scene for so long.
Sadly, at this time, current ownership is unable to continue to operate the restaurant and has made the difficult decision to close the doors. What is next for the space remains to be seen, however, DTW is thriving and we do not expect that location and that patio to be empty long.
Again, thank you all for your years of support, it has meant the world to us.
With Deepest Regrets,
-Lure Bistro Ownership
