A flood of BiteClubbers sent me this sad farewell to Forestville’s Mosaic Restaurant. According to Chef Tai Olesky, who sent the notes to restaurant fans, the kitchen will close for good on November 22, 2010.

Dearest Friends, Patrons and Family,
It is with absolute sorrow and regret that I find myself writing this; however, Mosaic Restaurant & Wine Lounge as we know it will be closing its doors for good on Monday November 22nd.  Due to the economic climate and resulting lack of business we are simply unable to operate as we have done in the past.  I want to personally thank all of you for the amazing support over these last five plus years.  It has been an absolute honor and joy to play host and do what it is I love to do…thank you!!!  The experience of cooking for and meeting so many wonderful folks makes this  difficult, if not unbearable decision worth it in many ways.  The friendships and happy faces I will never forget…the experiences… a part of me that cannot be removed.

That said, I would like to extend an invitation to come by this week for your last dose of the “Mosi” as we know it…and to say farewell.

The Mosaic team is very much still available for private events (and/or holiday gatherings), either at the restaurant or on your turf.  And please do stay tuned for the next incarnation of our creative juices.

With the most sincere and unwavering love I can imagine…
wishing you all, the utmost that life has to offer.

Be happy and well!!
Sincerely,  Tai Olesky
