East Austin Cajun restaurant Ophelia has closed after just three months in operation.

The eatery, at 507 Calles St., was a collaboration between Austin food-and-drink veteran Bridget Dunlap and Lynzy Moran of Baton Creole.

A statement posted today on Ophelia’s website says, in part: “Following a series of management discussions, the partnership was dissolved in late May. The Dunlap team wishes Moran the best, noting that sometimes things just do not work out. Moving forward, the team is evaluating all options to repurpose the space with fresh eyes.”

Ophelia, you may recall, took the place of another Dunlap creation, Mettle.
