Cunningham's closes S. 4th Street restaurant Sunday
The restaurant is advertised for sale for $575,000, with a lease extending through 2022, according to a commercial real estate listing that has been up for at least a few months.
George cited the changes along the block between Broadway and Chestnut Street, including the new Mercury Ballroom music venue next to the Palace Theater, the new Hilton Garden Inn and Kindred Healthcare's planned headquarters expansion and addition of 500 jobs.
"We just feel we need to tweak our concept a bit," he said, declining to elaborate on possibilities.
Cunningham's, a lunch spot known for its fried fish, has been in the space since 2003. The decision does not affect the family's other Cunningham's location 6301 River Road in Prospect.
George recently took over the restaurant following the death of his father, Donald.
