Award-winning chef Justin Severino announced that his Lawrenceville restaurant Cure will close in March to make room for an online charcuterie company.

“From the very beginning, the menu at Cure was built with the charcuterie program at its foundation,” the chef said in a news release. “Nearly every table started with a sampler board of eight or more cured meats. I couldn’t be prouder of the work we’ve done over the past seven years, and I can’t wait to evolve the restaurant into the new home of our online charcuterie company.”

Salty Pork Bits is the name of the charcuterie company.

“We have been blown away by the reception to Salty Pork Bits, and every month the demand for orders grows geographically,” Severino said.

Since Cure’s opening, the dining spot has been named one of the Top 50 Best New Restaurants by Bon Appétit magazine and received other national accolades.

Reservations for Cure’s final month are available online.

Severino will continue to run his other popular Lawrenceville restaurant, Morcilla.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
