A seemingly cursed Fan restaurant location appears to have claimed another victim.
The Peacock’s Pantry at 1731 W. Main St. is up for sale after about a year and half in business. It’s the latest in a long line of restaurants to open and close at the location, which formerly housed Cirrus, Dogwood Grille & Spirits, Plaza Mexico and Mainstream.
A June ad on Craigslist listed the business for sale.
Several calls from BizSense to the restaurant have gone unreturned. All traces of the Peacock’s Pantry name on the exterior have been removed. A “for sale by owner” sign remains.
John Purcell and Elizabeth Lee opened the Peacock’s Pantry in December 2011, about seven months after sandwich shop Mainstream called it quits. Peacock’s began as a weekend restaurant, with small plate offerings starting at $15. The business then shifted to hosting banquets and catering about a year later.
