Table 24 closes in downtown Rutland


Staff report

Owner Steven Sawyer has closed Table 24 in downtown Rutland after 15 years as a pillar of the dining scene downtown. 

Sawyer said he made the decision to focus on his family more, namely his almost 9-year-old daughter. 

The restaurant at 24 Wales Street closed its doors abruptly at the end of June, surprising many locally. 

Table 24 opened in 2008 and offered what it described as “upscale comfort food,” sourcing many ingredients locally and offering a nice semi-formal, semi-casual atmosphere. 

“I think the time is right for someone to come in and carry the mantle,” he told the Rutland Herald. “This is an amazing turn-key opportunity. Someone could come in and really run with it really easily.”

A few new restaurants have opened downtown recently, including: Taco Fresco, West Street Grille and The Mad Rose, according to Tiffany Saltis, executive director of the Downtown Rutland Partnership.

The restaurant and the name are now for sale. The 5,000 square foot retail building is listed at $850,000 ($170 per square foot). The executive summary for the property listed on Loopnet.com (a commercial real estate site) states: “You won’t find a more turn-key restaurant property than this… 5,000 square feet of space, as well as the business for sale. Located in the heart of Downtown Rutland, just 20 minutes from Killington Resort.”
