Elam Blank, who has operated Amish Kitchen locations around Tulsa since 1988, said he closed his latest restaurant, located at 3147 S. Harvard Ave.
"I'm not going to reopen this time," Blank said. "I'm going to do some other things."
Blank's restaurants served up homespun dishes including meatloaf, pot roast, turkey and dressing, fried chicken and schnitzels.
In addition, Josh Lynch announced the closure of his Dog House restaurant, featuring gourmet hot dogs and late-night hours on weekends, at 1101 S. Detroit Ave.
"We still have our four hot dog carts and a food truck, and we're going to be using them more extensively throughout the week during lunch and on weekends and during events downtown," Lynch said.
"I think we would open a restaurant location again if we could find the right spot in one of the popular areas downtown."
Lynch said daily locations of the carts will be posted on the Dog House Facebook page.
