LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Corbett's: An American Place is closing.

Chef Dean Corbett confirmed the closure and released the following statement:

"While this is an incredibly sad time for us all, I am personally incredibly grateful to all the talented men and women who passed through our doors, becoming part of our team over the past 10 years, who have given their time and talents to make us the very best. I also want to thank our fantastic guests and purveyors. Many of the Corbett's team will be joining the Equus & Jack's family including Corbett's general manager Cory Givin; executive chef Paul Sant; bar manager Tommy Simms and long-time manager Cesar Perez Rivas who will head up our new full-time catering division.  We look forward to seeing all of you at Equus and Jack's Lounge. We will continue to use Corbett's a private dining venue."

The east Louisville restaurant was in business for almost a decade. Corbett opened the restaurant in December of 2007.

In 2008, Esquire magazine named Corbett's one of the "Best New Restaurants."

Corbett also owns restaurants Equus and Jack's Lounge.
