Marketa is not closing, despite several rumors saying otherwise.

Marketa, located at 37-17 30th Ave, closed its doors to the public Monday to focus on hosting private events, according to the owner.

While closed, the restaurant will also be used for film and television shoots. However, the owner is not permitted to disclose what will be filmed there due to contracts he has signed with the production companies.

Several private events have been scheduled in coming weeks, and the owner said that once the filming is complete the restaurant will reopen to the public in mid-January.

The owner said that restaurant will be undergoing some slight renovations before it reopens. Furthermore, the menu will change as a new chef has recently come on board.

The owner denied the rumors that Marketa’s doors have been closed to the public for good. However, he did say that if someone came by and made the right offer he would consider selling.

“Everything is for sale at any time if the offer is amazing,” he said.
