Foggy Nantucket, the pizza and barbeque restaurant on Orange Street that had quickly become an island favorite since it opened in 2019, announced late last week that it was "closed effective immediately."

Owners Shaun and Amanda Riley alluded to a "shocking" dispute over the renewal of their lease at 147 Orange Street that resulted in the abrupt closure.

"We are very hurt to announce that Foggy will be closing," they stated in a social media post (see the full message below). "Unfortunately a dispute which I cannot yet express has cost us our lease, which was set to renew. Although I cannot go into detail - The way in which we were dismissed is shocking. We are very unhappy with the direction this has taken. We are saddened and feel we have let the year-round community down. Please know, we tried."

The building at 147 Orange Street where Foggy Nantucket is located was purchased in January 2019 by Patrick Ridge, the owner of the nearby restaurant Island Kitchen.

Responding to an inquiry from the Current, Ridge had few words about the situation or what the future holds for the commercial space on Orange Street.

"No comment and no plans for the space," Ridge wrote in an e-mail to the Current.

Foggy Nantucket had expanded its operation just last year to include the "Foggy Market" in the adjacent space in the building, selling grab-and-go meals, prepared foods, meats, cheeses, and charcuterie.

While their time is ending at Orange Street, it sounds as if the Rileys would like to continue Foggy Nantucket at another location on the island and are actively looking. Read their full post below:
