The owners of the Latin fusion restaurant Rio Cafe have called it quits.

Partners Richard Epling and Eduardo Huerta left a note on the door of the restaurant, 2526 E. Grant Road, thanking friends and loyal foodies for their patronage over the last six years.

“We have had great times and tremendous challenges, but the love you have shared has made it remarkable,” the letter read.

Rio filled the void left behind by the Cajun restaurant Nonie.
