RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Raleigh restaurateur Ashley Christensen announced that she is closing one of her popular downtown spots.
In an email to subscribers on Tuesday, the local celebrity chef announced that her wood-fired pizza joint, Poole'side Pies on McDowell Street will close Dec. 23.
Christensen wrote that it wasn't an easy decision but made "carefully and in response to the community's ever-evolving needs."
Christensen said she is already working on a new food concept to fill the space.
Poole'side Pies opened in 2019, next door to Christensen's flagship restaurant, Poole's Diner.
