The Ruby Tuesday in the Mount Vernon Plaza shopping center closed for good on Friday.
The restaurant appears to have closed without any notice. Notes left on the door thanked patrons for their support and included the address for the Van Dorn Street location in Kingstowne.
A message left with Ruby Tuesday’s corporate office was not immediately returned, but the Route 1 location has already been removed from the chain’s website.
Ruby Tuesday has fallen on hard times nationally over the past decade. More than 400 locations have closed since 2007, when Ruby Tuesday had 945 restaurants, according to Restaurant Business. In 2018 alone more than 50 locations were closed.
