Indianapolis is losing another restaurant today, this one Duos Kitchen, the popular healthier restaurant know for its bowls.

It will close permanently after lunch Friday, according to a Facebook posting on the Duos Facebook page.

The 2960 N. Meridian location had been operating, while Duos locations at City Market and Eskenazi Health had been temporarily closed due to the pandemic. 

Duos, owned by Becky and David Hostetter and John Garnier, said it had watched the stream of recent coronavirus-related restaurant closings, hoping to avoid joining.

“But we’ve finally had to face the reality that because of the pandemic and our inept government, staying open is no longer an option,” the posting said.

“We’re devastated. We’re also angry, on our own behalf and for the many more small businesses who aren’t going to survive into a post-pandemic world.”

Diners can grab one last lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 pm. Friday.
