CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Pewter Rose, a Charlotte landmark known for its romantic décor and butterscotch scones for nearly a quarter-century, will close after Sunday dinner, operating partner Susie Peck said Thursday.
Its 25th anniversary in the turn-of-the-century textile mill in South End would have been Feb. 13.
Peck said it had gotten harder and harder to maintain the business, which she, among a dozen partners, opened in this building in 1988. When a water pipe burst last weekend, causing damage to first-floor tenants’ spaces, she made a decision that “I’ve been thinking about for awhile, but never wanted to do.”
Now, she hopes to reconnect with old friends at dinners, and to get “some closure.”
