Jackson’s on the River closes

MIDDLEBURY — The owners of Jackson’s on the River Restaurant have elected to close the Bakery Lane business after a two-year run.
Announcement of the closing came in the form of a post on the Jackson’s Facebook site, one month after owners Craig Goldstein and Chris English had informed customers the eatery would be closed during the month of April. The duo had indicated the month-long hiatus was needed to work on a new menu and spruce up the restaurant’s website.
But a May 1 posting on Facebook informed customers: “After a great deal of very careful deliberation, Chris and Craig have decided to close the restaurant’s doors permanently. This is not a decision that we have come to easily. It has been our privilege to be a part of the Middlebury community for the last two years and we want to thank all of you who have ever dined with us for your support. To those of you whom we have come to embrace personally as friends, we will miss your day-to-day companionship. We wish you all the very best!”
It was in April of 2010 that the Addison Independent reported that Goldstein and English, both Cornwall residents, had acquired the former Tully & Marie’s at 7 Bakery Lane, Middlebury, from previous owners Laurie Reed and Carolyn Dundon.
“We hope to be an important part of the area,” Goldstein said of the venture during the 2010 interview. Goldstein is a classically trained chef who had been looking for a local venue through which to showcase his culinary talents.
English, a former manager with AT&T, had been looking for a new venture. The two friends and their families decided to launch Jackson’s.
“My goal has always been to find my own business that was local, closely tied to the community and that was personally meaningful to me and fun to do,” English said two years ago. “I’ve always had a passion for food — I have been cooking for family and friends for over 20 years.”
Calls made to both Goldstein and English went unreturned as the Addison Independent went to press on Friday.
