Bigelo’s Bistrow, a downtown Edwardsville institution, will close this month, the restaurant announced Monday night.
“So much has changed since we first opened our doors in 2000 with determination and a dream to offer our customers excellent food in a laid-back atmosphere. Our own families have grown while downtown Edwardsville has experienced dramatic transformation,” said a note on the restaurant’s Facebook page. We’ve decided to end this run on a high note so that we can spend more precious time with those who mean so much to us. As of Oct. 11, Bigelo’s will close. Thank you for letting us be a part of your family for the past 19 years.”
The restaurant at 140 N. Main St. is owned by Edwardsville resident Jeff Thomas.
