Lord, the press releases are flying in today. Next girl up:

After four years of operations, Kent Rathbun Concepts has decided to close Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen at its current location and re-concept the space in the fall of 2014.  “We have thoroughly enjoyed satisfying our Blue Plate guests over the years and look forward to hosting them at our other restaurants in the market, Abacus, Jasper’s or an event hosted by Kent Rathbun Catering”, said owner and Chef Kent Rathbun.  “We are actively engaged in discussions on future locations, excited about the recently new menu innovations introduced at our existing restaurants and continuing our broad community involvement of which we have been a participant over the last 14 years.”
