      as noted in the comments, the all-white-and-glass space was really bad. just not a warm or welcoming place to be. tacky lighting, etc..

      wish him better luck in the next endeavor.

    2. Too bad. I checked out the space a couple of weeks ago and it looked weird--right off the lobby. But the food was supposed to be very good. I hope they find a suitable space.

        The food was great. I know they had some concerns whether or not diners would go for the space. Sadly, those concerns were valid.

      2. The hotel owner said he was going to keep it open.

          A restaurant with the same name =/= The same restaurant.
