      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.

      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.

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

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