  • Tucson's taste of New England closed last weekend.

Fans of Brian Metzger's New England style eatery got some bad news on Saturday, May 16 when the restaurant announced its close via Facebook. The post from Jackson Tavern, which was located at 2900 N. Swan Road, said:

To our valued guests:
We are sad to report that effective immediately Jackson Tavern is closed.
We were excited to bring a taste of New England to Tucson and had hoped to serve our community for many years to come. Unfortunately the concept never took off the way that we thought it would and we won't have that opportunity.
We would like to thank our staff for all of their hard work.
We would like to thank our guests for all of their support, and would welcome the opportunity to serve you at Poppy Kitchen.

Metzger opened Jackson Tavern in December 2014, giving the restaurant just five months before closing on Saturday. 

Ginny Wooters, who opened Jackson Tavern as the chef originally, will be going on to run the kitchen at Commoner & Co., according to owner Nathan Ares who also owns Prep & Pastry. The Range will have more on what to expect from that new space coming this week.

As for Metzger's restaurants, Poppy Kitchen remains open with Gio Taco recently closing downtown as well. The taco fusion concept shuttered in March of this year.
