There’s a new shutter to know about along the Sunset Strip today, as The Guild has unceremoniously called it quits. The year-old eatery fell into a rather cursed space, it seems, and did its best to hold on for as long as possible.

Though the restaurant itself has not confirmed the shutter (Eater reached out, and hasn’t heard back) the phone is currently disconnected and Opentable is offline. What’s more, The Guild has posted the below ominous Instagram photo, with a caption that promises to “update you when our doors reopen.”

According to sources, The Guild has been struggling for some time, and is behind on some key payments needed to keep the place afloat. If the shutter holds true, it will mark another sad day for a space that has struggled to keep tenants over the past decade. Before The Guild there was Al Bacio, and before that Osteria Drago and Il Sole. So far, no word on what might be next.
