Deep Ellum, a restaurant and bar that has quenched the thirst of Allston residents for the past 13 years, is closing.

On Saturday, founders Aaron Sanders and Max Toste wrote on their Facebook page, “When the state allows us to open for full service we have made the difficult decision not to reopen Deep Ellum in Allston and instead to expand Lone Star into the current Deep Ellum space.”

Read the full statement below.

The founders’ other business, Lone Star Taco Bar, will expand into the space in a move that aims to provide a safer layout for employees and customers in the post-pandemic world.
