Resto, Madison - Closing
I received an e-mail message today announcing that Resto in Madison would be serving its last dinners on Sunday, September 2. While I haven't been in a while, I am sorry that it is closing. Chef-Owner Rob Ubhaus says that he will be devoting all his energies to Rob's Bistro next door. That is good news for me, since I have been a fan of Rob's for a while, but noticed a marked decline in the food the last time I was there in June. I subsequently learned that the sous-chef had taken over the kitchen. I guess that didn't work out so well.
Just received this email, so I thought I'd share:
To All Our Valued Guests - RESTO and ROB'S BISTRO,
As you know, RESTO closed September 2, 2012. Since that time, as a sign of goodwill, the owners of ROB'S BISTRO (which has a different ownership structure from that at RESTO) have been honoring RESTO gift cards at ROB'S BISTRO.
Unfortunately, ROB'S BISTRO can no longer extend this courtesy. If you have any unused or partially-used RESTO gift cards, they must be "used" by January 20, 2013.
As always, we look forward to seeing you soon here at ROB'S BISTRO.
