Lindy & Grundy, the high-end butcher shop nestled in the heart of the Fairfax District, is now closed.

A tipster told Eater LA that the popular shop that supplied local, sustainable and organic meats sold the last of its items over the weekend before shutting its doors, and now butcher paper covers the glass walls of the little shop.

The shop was helmed by former couple Amelia Posada and Erika Nakamura for the past three years. The L.A. Times reported in June that the pair split up; Nakamura decided to move back home to New York City, while Posada would stay back to run Lindy & Grundy.

“This has been so hard,” Posada told the Times. “We were together for eight years, we got married, we started this incredible business together. It was absolutely the hardest and most exciting and challenging three years we’ve ever had. We didn’t have a mentor, we didn’t have business partners, we didn’t have anything but each other and a passion and a lot of moxie."

It looks like Nakamura came back to Lindy & Grundy for its last hurrah, as she was in this Instagram photo posing with the crew:
