According to a Facebook post, Brian Metzger's Poppy Kitchen is closed. Metzger, who was regarded as an up-and-coming Sam Fox-style restaurateur, could not immediately be reached for comment on the closure of his restaurant, which was announced the evening of Friday, Aug. 28.

The Facebook post said simply, "Poppy Kitchen is currently closed. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience."

Metzger's Jax Kitchen closed in February 2014, followed by The Abbey in October 2014, Gio Taco in March 2015 and Jackson Tavern in May 2015 after just half of a year in operation. The restaurant, which operated in Westin La Paloma Resort, was the last vestige of the Metzger Family Restaurant Group. They had hired chef Gary Hickey to take over kitchen operations earlier this spring.

While it is unclear at this time what the future holds for Metzger or the former Poppy Kitchen space, the answering message for Poppy Kitchen promises an announcement for an "exciting, new" venture in Westin La Paloma.
