Owners Juan and Yulitsa Reyes posted to Salsa Puerto Rican’s website and social media pages that they’re closing their popular Latin and Caribbean restaurant on Saturday, April 27.

The closing announcement was posted on Facebook and appeared on Salsa’s website Monday morning from the couple, saying “our hearts are filled with emotions as we say thank you and goodbye to Nashville, to our patrons and friends...We have been blessed with the opportunity to share our labor of love with you.”

Opened in January of 2013, Salsa serves a variety of dishes from throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, while focusing on beloved staples from the restaurant’s namesake territory.

Eater reached out to owners asking a reason for the closure, but hasn’t heard back yet. Read the Reyes’ social media announcement below. No word yet on what might replace Salsa.

In the meantime, pop in over the next few weeks (probably before NFL draft weekend) for happy hour, mofongo, and tembleque one more time before April 27.
