Anyone know what happened to the Red Room? The PPG said they closed.

    A friend of the landlord told me that they had just stopped paying rent and he finally padlocked the doors.

      I found this out yesterday and I am really upset. The main reason being we bought a substantial gift certificate the week before Christmas for a family member and it is now worthless. I loved this restaurant and supported it from the beginning. They should have said they don't sell gift certificates if they had any idea (which they should have) they may be in financial trouble. Totally unacceptable.

        If the first comment is correct, then that really was low to have sold you the gift.

        I wonder if another restaurant might honor it. Maybe some restauranteur who's reading this right now? (C'mon, we know you're out there!)

          We are hoping someone takes over the space and honors the gift. Thanks for putting it out there though Panini Guy!

        A friend of the owner told me that the landlord was an idiot and made it impossible to run a business. So sad, I loved this place.

        I thought the food went downhill after Sousa left
