Gold Coast foodies are in mourning today, after one of the best restaurants in the state shut its doors for good.
Sparrow Eating House at Nobby Beach announced on Instagram that was not going to renew lease.
The eatery, recently named in the top 100 Queensland restaurants by Delicious Magazine, closed up shop for the final time on Thursday night.
"Just wanted to say a huge good bye and thank you to everyone who has supported Sparrow over the last 3.5 years," the Instagram post read.
"Tonight we are booked out and it was such a great feeling to end Sparrow on a high.
"For all of you that drank all the peanut butter martinis, ate all those zucchini flowers & Banofee Jaffles, drooled over the cold rare beef, or enhaled [sic] a Oreo brûlée - Thank you".
The delicious food could be back though, with the post promising we will seen pop-up dinners and events at the owners other establishment, Elk Espresso.
