Not only is Green Door moving out, but it seems Big John's is also closing

Foodies were dismayed to hear that with a new Big John's owner in the mix, the partnership with adopted sibling restaurant, The Green Door, is ending on October 31. But it seems the news is worse: The Post and Courier food critic Hanna Raskin shares a photo that Big John's has posted a note that on October 31 legendary local bar Big John's itself will close.

Raskin notes that the bar, which was run by brothers Chris and Jim Condon, has now been taken over by the pair's uncle, Ryan Condon, who is also co-owner of The Crab Shack.

We'll be sure to update with confirmation and what's next for the East Bay spot.
