Chris Cusack’s Heights restaurant, coffee shop and bar Down House, 1801 Yale St., Houston, closed Feb. 21 after almost 10 years in business.

"Our original goal was to build educated communities around great food and beverages. Reflecting on the way the Heights has developed over the last ten years, we are proud to have played a part in building this community," an Instagram post announcing the closure said.

“These folks are what made Down House special, and it’s to everyone who put their love and energy into this building that I feel particularly grateful. Thank you guys for everything.”

A specific reason for the closure was not given in the announcement.
