Jackson staple Nick’s Restaurant is closed as of Monday after 31 years as part of the area’s culinary landscape.
Nick’s, previously located in the BancorpSouth building on Lakeland Dr., has called Fondren home for more than four years.
Owner Nick Apostle said on Facebook that his motivation for closing the fine dining restaurant was his family. “This closing will allow me to spend time with those that supported me during all the late nights and long weekend hours,” he said. “Alice and I are looking forward to being together and with our five young grandchildren.”
While Nick’s modern American fare will be missed, Mermaid Café in Lake Caroline, Apostle’s other restaurant, will remain open.
