If you're wondering why Black Cat Bistro is closing, you're not the only one. So I went in search of that answer as well.

Why is Black Cat Bistro Closing?

Black Cat Bistro is closing because the owners want to take that space in a new direction. And that direction would be a Mexican eatery, called Los Tres Mex Grill.

According to Lansing State Journal, the permits have been approved, and we could see Los Tres Mex Grill open as soon as sometime in November.

So while one restaurant may be closing, another is opening in its stead. Goodbye, Black Cat Bistro.
