Is this place any good? Why? Why not?

    I'm going tonight for "the last supper." Very sad.

    I'm very curious where the head chef is going as well.

      If you get the opportunity to ask someone in-the-know, try and find out (or confirm), "Why they're closing?", and report back.

      Someone on another thread said it's because the owner sold the building. (Implying that the new owner wants to up their rent, or has something else in mind for their square footage?)

        The original developer (a partner in the deal) sold the property. So Norman's goes along with the developer. They're still cookin' in FLA! Come on down!

        Does anyone know where Peter the sommelier is going? I thought he was great! It would be a shame if Los Angeles lost him.

          We spoke to him last night and he said that he was in need of a long leisurely vacation! He is considering taking up a position at Norman's latest outpost in Key West, but also said that he might remain in LA if a great opportunity presented itself. I guess where he chooses to go remains to be seen.

            I went last night for the last pig roast. It was absolutely phenomenal, and I will mourn the loss of this great establishment for months/years to come.

              wow...what a shame! I knew they were having problems, just didn't know it went down already. Thanks for the info!
