Less than five months after its sudden debut, Detroit restaurant Fist of Curry will close this weekend.

The 1970s-styled, spice-centric restaurant opened in February where the Huron Room (a Great Lakes-themed restaurant) was at 2547 Bagley. Owners — who also own Green Dot Stables and Johnny Noodle King — didn't tell anyone they were changing concepts and instead spent around 72 hours transforming the restaurant after working on a curry menu for six months.

Co-owner Jacques Driscoll told The Detroit News in February he and his partners had been looking for a space for the curry concept and decided to place it inside the Huron Room. He said the Huron Room's menu could pop up elsewhere down the road.

On social media late last month, the restaurant announced it would close.

"We came, we saw, we curried ... and now it's time to curry on" the post reads. "Though it may have been brief, it was most certainly sweet. From everyone on our team, we want to thank you for helping us actualize the Fist of Curry dream."

The owners will use the building as a commissary kitchen for their other restaurants and, in the future, will possibly allow local, independent restaurants to use the space.

Last service will be Sunday.
