Lansing Area Restaurant Closures in 2023

Lansing will have to say goodbye to Tannin on Michigan Avenue.

Tannin is an Italian eatery that has a focus on handmade pasta, fresh ingredients, and perfect wine pairings. And if you want to enjoy a night out at this eatery before it closes, you should make a reservation soon.

Tannin in Lansing is Closing

Tannin's last day will be on Thursday, August 3rd.

Patrons and Lansing residents alike are terribly sad about this news.

Kristen Stroher said, "We are heartbroken!!! Love you guys". Holly Ann Simon also chimed in with, "Oh, I’m devastated! Best luck on your next adventure." Peter Richards summed up everyone's thoughts in his statement:

You've been such an important part of the neighborhood. You stuck with us through a difficult time.
I'm a firm believer places need everything from taco carts to Tannins, a full range of food and drink to match the full range of people and life events that living, breathing neighborhoods require.
Thank you, eternally, for the great food and atmosphere. If you ever want to give it another go, please consider the East Side.

Overall, all the comments and messages were ones of condolences, well-wishes, and hopes that Tannin might consider reopening at another location in the future.

Tannin Closed and Reopened in 2022

No word on the reasons for the closure, but this isn't the first time that Tannin has had to close its doors.

Back in April 2022, they announced that they were temporarily closing because of staffing issues. After a brief closure, Tannin reopened in November 2022.
