Scratch Biscuits Closed Over the Weekend

The quick-serve biscuit shop lasted just over a year

Midtown Village's biscuit sandwich shop Scratch Biscuits, closed yesterday, July 17. Owner Mitch Prensky posted to his Facebook a picture of the note he taped to the shop's front door:

July 7 was the fast-casual shop's one-year anniversary.

"At the end of the day, it's a business like any other," said Prensky. The chef summed up the closing to it not gaining the momentum he had originally intended it to, so he closed to focus on his other projects, including catering this summer's roaming beer garden Parks on Tap as well as some private catering via The Global Dish.

Despite not having a brick and mortar, Scratch Biscuits will still continue to operate as a pop-up concept, so follow its Twitter account to find out where he and his team will show up next. Prensky and company will be in front of the Franklin Institute this week from July 20 - 25, serving up his usual menu of parker roll sliders during the week, and on the weekend, a limited supply of Scratch biscuits.
