Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 9.25.08 AMSad news for fans of the Merion Village favorite Explorers Club. The restaurant closed on Sunday. Owners Tracey Studer and Orlando Martinez shared this message on social media:

It is with a heavy heart that Orlando and I must announce the closing of the Explorers Club. For the last four years the restaurant has been “the little engine that could” for all of us here on the South Side but after much deep thought, exhaustion and the recognition of fiscal realities we must, for now, leave the brick and mortar part of the business and concentrate on our food truck and catering businesses. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our patrons, our staff and the neighborhood for helping us and supporting us. We deeply appreciate all of you and we will miss all of you. Please come and visit us at our food truck where we will continue to serve our Latin inspired cuisine.
