ALEXANDRIA, VA. -  Chef Cathal Armstrong and his wife Meshelle will close Restaurant Eve next month in Alexandria after 14 years in business. The restaurant's last day will be June 2.

A message on Restaurant Eve's website reads:

Our restaurant was conceived from our love of food and hospitality with a name lent by our first child. Eve was only four then. She's nineteen now.

The years we've spent at Eve with each other, our staff and our guests have been some of the best of our lives. We have acquired accolades and developed friendships far beyond our expectations. Cathal, myself, Todd and the support team that helped shape us and carry us thru the years have always felt proud of what we have achieved and equally proud that we all took the journey together.

We are most thankful to our investors for believing in us, our staff for standing by us, our landlords for their friendship, the food journalists for their professionalism and to you — the public who have all played a part and contributed to the success of a very special restaurant. We thank you all for your support over these years, we are grateful to all of you.

The closing comes as the Armstrongs and business partner Todd Thrasher's Eat Good Food Group pursue other ventures at The Wharf DC. The group opened Kaliwa earlier this year, and Potomac Distilling Company is expected to open this summer.

The chef previously told Washingtonian he would re-conceptualize or close Restaurant Eve. The group is also looking at revamping Eamonn's, another Old Town restaurant that serves up Irish fare. Armstrong's latest Alexandria restaurant Hummingbird opened at the new Hotel Indigo in 2017. There has been no word on changes to his other Alexandria restaurants—the PX cocktail bar and Society Fair.
