The Brown Deer location will remain open.

The downtown location of the French restaurant Pastiche will close at the end of the year because of coming changes at Hotel Metro, its home, the restaurant's owner said.

The restaurant's location in Brown Deer will remain open, and some downtown employees eventually will transfer to that location, chef-owner Michael Engel said.

The hotel is renovating as it takes on the Marriott Autograph brand, Engel said; it wanted the restaurant to close for an undetermined length of time for the project, "which we couldn't do."

The downtown Pastiche, at 411 E. Mason St., will continue its hours the rest of the year and recently made some menu changes. 

"We’ve tweaked the menu to reach out to the younger people downtown," Engel said in an email.

Pastiche Bistro first opened in the Bay View neighborhood in 2010. It opened the second location, in Brown Deer, in February 2016 and then moved from Bay View to downtown in September 2016.
