Rich and Cary Hanson regret to announce that Cleonice Bistro will be closing it's doors at the end of service on December 31st 2014. In our twelve and a half years in downtown Ellsworth we have been fortunate to work with some of the finest farmers, fishermen, and food crafters in the State. We are particularly thankful for our wonderful staff who has stood by us through good times and bad. It's also been a pleasure to become a part of our customers lives, watching children grow into young adults, seeing couples we helped celebrate their weddings building families, sharing your joys and sadnesses. We hope that our last month of service provides an opportunity for all of our longtime customers and friends to have a chance to say goodbye and enjoy the best meal they've ever had with us.
