COLUMBUS, Indiana — A downtown Columbus restaurant that operated for nearly 20 years has closed its doors.

Owners Jennifer Cook-Provenza and Steve Provenza closed Smith’s Row Food and Spirits, 418 4th St., on Saturday — three years to the day of purchasing the restaurant, they said in an email to The Republic.

The married couple owns the building, and Cook-Provenza said they are in early stages of considering future development.

Within the next 30 days, guests with unused gift certificates can mail them to 418 4th St. for a full refund by including a mailing address and contact information, she said.
