Timber Wood-Fired Grill, which opened to much promise in July 2010 in the longtime home of Inn Flight restaurant across from Abington Memorial Hospital on Old York Road, has closed.

From what I'm hearing, the neighbors balked at its price points, which were in the mid- to high-$20s at dinner - a step up from its original more modest tabs. It didn't help that manager Michael Dombkoski left last fall; he's now at Paramour in Wayne.

I'm awaiting word from the owner, who I understand is trying to sell the lease.

The liquor license is inactive; state records show that the restaurant paid a $1,250 fine in March for selling alcohol after its license had expired.
