ANN ARBOR, MI — Cloverleaf Restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor has announced it will be closing after nearly 30 years in business at its current location.
A sign on the door at the Cloverleaf Restaurant, located at 201 East Liberty St. in Ann Arbor, announced that it closed permanently on Dec. 17.
“Thank you for three wonderful decades and a lifetime of memories,” reads the sign on the restaurant’s door. “…We deeply appreciate your patronage and support over these past 27 years.”
Reasons for the closure are currently unclear. Owner George Stamadianos could not be reached for comment.
Although Cloverleaf Restaurant has been at its current Liberty Street location since 1993, it operated as Cloverleaf Lunch for nearly more than a decade previously.
The restaurant was originally bought in 1982 by Nick Stamadianos, George Stamadianos’ father, who ran it with co-owner Dominic Argiero under the name Cloverleaf Lunch at 1015 Broadway Street. The restaurant operated in the same location from 1947 to 1993, at which point it shuttered briefly after losing the lease at the Broadway Street location. It reopened shortly after at its Liberty Street location under the name Cloverleaf Restaurant, according to previous reporting from The Ann Arbor News.
The restaurant was known for its diner-style food, including the Cloverleaf Special, which featured lean corned beef over hashbrowns with eggs and toast. Other options included a variety of omelets, pancakes and sandwiches.
“We could never thank you enough,” the sign continues. “The Cloverleaf has been our second home, and we have been ‘lucky’ to have you as part our family. We will miss you dearly.”
