Alchemy in Gloucester Has Closed...Again

An upscale restaurant on the North Shore has shut its doors for the second time, but this time it appears to be a permanent closure.

According to a post on its Facebook page, Alchemy in Gloucester shut down over the weekend, with the Duncan Street dining spot saying the following:

We're closing....For real this time. The way people dine is evolving, and while we have lots of wonderful, loyal guests, Alchemy just isn't a place most people can eat at multiple times a week, and that's not our goal. We want a space where families can dine out regularly with great food, drinks and a fun, casual vibe. So, we're going to make that. We don't know exactly how it will look or what the food will be, but we're going to figure it out; and when we do, we'll let you know.

Another note from the Facebook page says that gift cards for Alchemy will be honored at all other Serenitee Restaurant Group dining spots, including Opus in Salem, The Waterfield Kitchen in Winchester, The Spot in Georgetown, Maggie's Farm in Middleton, 15 Walnut in Hamilton, Hale St Tavern in Beverly Farms, Cala's in Manchester by the Sea, and Latitude 43 and Minglewood Tavern in Gloucester, and customers who have Groupons for the restaurant will be able to apply for a refund.

An earlier post from Good Morning Gloucester stated that Alchemy closed for the first time in March of 2014 only to reopen that fall with a new menu, according to another article,

The address for the now-closed Alchemy was 3 Duncan Street, Gloucester, MA, 01930.

Thanks to one of our sources for initially bringing this to our attention.
