ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A popular, one of a kind Albuquerque restaurant is closing.
“Tim’s Place” near Academy and Wyoming will close on December 20th. Owner Tim Harris has garnered a lot of national attention for being the first person with down syndrome in the U.S. to own and operate his own restaurant.
He’s also known for his famous hugs that you order off the menu.
Tim says while he’s sad to close his restaurant, it’s for a good reason. He says he’s moving to Denver to be with the love of his life, Tiffany.
Tim says eventually he would like to open a Tim’s Place in Denver.
