MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTIC) - First & Last Tavern in Middletown is closing, according to Mayor Dan Drew.

The city is moving to evict the restaurant from its Main Street location for overdue rent dating back to 2016, which currently totals more than $140,000.

Drew wrote in a post on Facebook that the city filed a lawsuit to evict the restaurant in January earlier this year. He added that there are other restaurant groups expressing interest in taking over the space, and the city will consider "the one most beneficial to the taxpayers of Middletown."

First & Last will close by April 1st.
