A nearly nine-year-old restaurant just off the Fayetteville square has permanently closed.

Fresco Restaurant & Cocktails owners posted the news on their Facebook page last week, and most of the fixtures and signage had been removed when we stopped by this week.

The restaurant opened in 2011 as Fresco Cafe and Pub, and rebranded a few years later. Their focus was on sandwiches, paninis, flat bread pizzas, soups and salads.

The business also operated a late-night bar called Club Lush at the location.

The restaurant was located in the building at 112 W. Center Street, formerly known as the EJ Ball building.
