North Clark County residents who would like to have one more meal at Galeotti’s Restaurant in Battle Ground will only have a few more days to do so, as the restaurant will close its door at the end of the day Sun., Sept. 16.
Joshua Monen, founder and editor of the Battle Ground Buzz, was first to break the story of Galeotti’s closing on his Battle Ground Buzz Online Radio Show when he interviewed Mike Galeotti, Sr., one of the restaurant’s owners.
“We regret to inform our friends, family and the wonderful people in Battle Ground that we find it necessary to close down our restaurant,” Galeotti said in the interview with Monen. “We are hoping it will be a temporary close.”
During his interview with Monen, Galeotti told listeners that the reason the family has decided to close the restaurant is due to some recent family issues. Galeotti’s son, Michael Galeotti, is currently in the middle of a divorce with his soon-to-be ex wife, Bethany Joy.
“It does affect the ownership structure of the restaurant and we just decided it would be best to close until the divorce is over,” Mike Galeotti, Sr. said in the interview. “It’s a sad say for us as a family. It’s with heavy hearts that we’re going to be closing our doors as of Sunday.”
Galeotti’s Restaurant will be open for the rest of the week, 4-10 p.m. on the weekdays and 4-11 p.m. on the weekend, and they will close at the end of the day Sun., Sept. 16.
“Sunday will be our last day and we will be saying goodbye and farewell to our customers during the last few days,” Galeotti said.
After closing on Sunday, Galeotti said they will have a private party for the staff, but friends in the community who wish to stick around can also do so.
