Schnitzelburg restaurant to serve last brunch

A Schnitzelburg restaurant is calling it quits at the end of the year.

Lydia House will serve their final brunch on Dec. 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The funky spot on Lydia Street serves Asian-style food including noodle soups and tofu scrambles.

Lydia House opened nearly four years ago.

The restaurant’s owner, Lydia Ruff, spoke of the closing on Facebook Wednesday:

I am so sad to announce that I will be closing Lydia House at the end of December. When I opened almost four years ago, I really had no idea what I was doing; I just wanted to create a neighborhood joint for all of us to hang out in and feel comfortable. That so many of you enjoyed what I had to offer has been thrilling.

Getting to know my neighbors, hosting musicians and artists, and having the privilege of working with amazing people has been such a joy, and I cannot say thank you enough to all of you.

The restaurant biz is really tough, and I just can’t hang anymore.

Thanks again to everyone that came here to eat, see a show or play a show, or hang art on our walls. And the deepest gratitude to everyone who has worked with me here. You are the best bunch of people I know.

Our last official shift will be Sunday Brunch, December 30th, 10am-2pm. There will be a special party after midnight on New Years that I will keep you posted about as plans come together.

Xoxox, Emily

P.S. Stay tuned for something new in this space soon:)
