SALISBURY — Cooper’s restaurant has closed.

Saturday was the last day of business for the downtown eatery at 122 E. Fisher St. Leslie and Joseph Cataldo owned and operated the restaurant in Salisbury’s entertainment district for two and a half years.

“It is with great sadness that we announce our closing,” the Cataldos announced on Facebook. “… The many events, private parties and just chatting with you at your table are memories we hold dear and will always be cherished and remembered.”

Long-time restaurateurs and caterers, the Cataldos thanked old friends “for sticking with us through your love, prayers and support” and told new friends, “we wish to continue our friendships into the future.”

The news came as a surprise to many, including employees and loyal customers who posted heartsick messages on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
