Longstanding South Beach market and deli, Epicure Gourmet Market & Café (1656 Alton Road), confirmed in a tweet late last night that it was closing its doors for good after Hurricane Irma.

The store and deli, which sold a variety of prepared foods, groceries, flowers and pastries, has been open on South Beach since 1945. The shop initially closed last Friday, September 16, due to the storm, and in a series of tweets confirmed it wouldn’t reopen anymore because of “problems with storm insurance.... declining sales, etc etc.”

This marks the closing of the last location of Epicure, which began an expansion in the South Florida market some ten years ago, but never seemed to quite take off. Its Sunny Isles location closed this past March and its Coral Gables location in 2015.
