Dear Providence Community,

As of Thursday, December 27th, 2012, due to a change of ownership / management environment outside of our control, Temple Downtown will be closed for business. We want to personally thank everyone for their support over the years. Without this loyalty we would not have been able to service downtown Providence for six memorable years.

On behalf of Temple Downtown and Sage Restaurant Group. we thank you for helping make Temple what it was, and for embracing us as the way you did. Please follow us at www.sagerestaurantgroup.com.

Temple Downtown was part of the long-anticipated redevelopment of Providence's Masonic Temple building. The restaurant was a popular gathering spot during major event in the city, particularly Rhode Island's Film Festivals. Its presence will by sorely missed.
