Capital Club 16, a restaurant and bar known for its German-American fare, is permanently closing its dining room, the restaurant announced on its social media channels.

Why it matters: For nearly 15 years, Capital Club — located on the bottom floor of the historic Capital Club building on the corner of Salisbury and Martin streets — has been a staple of the downtown Raleigh dining scene.

  • It was a popular haunt of Fayetteville Street workers and capitol politicos alike.

Driving the news: Owned by chef Jake Wolf, Capital Club said it is transitioning to onsite catering, serving at pop-up events and focusing on its food truck, The Wandering Wolf.

Between the lines: Downtown Raleigh's restaurant scene continues to be in flux since the pandemic, with longtime favorites such as Garland and Humble Pie closing.

  • But new kitchens, including Figulina, Chido Taco and Flavor Hills, continue to open downtown.
