Square One restaurant closes

Square One, a popular lunch and dinner spot in the revived 100 block of South Main Street south of the Historic Courthouse, has closed.

Although a sign on the door said the restaurant is closed until further notice, neighboring merchants said they don't expect the business to reopen.
The 99-year-old two-story building is owned by local architect and Black Hawk construction company owner Ken Gaylord. The building has 6,300 square feet of space and is assessed for tax purposes at $942,200.Square One occupied the ground floor and Gaylord's offices are upstairs. Before Square One opened, the space had been occupied by Gypsy Cab, another restaurant. Gaylord said he expected a new restaurant tenant to open in that space. The 100 block also contains the popular Never Blue restaurant and the Jongo Java coffeehouse.
