Asiatique closed it's doors recently. A very sad day for Louisville. All the best to Chef Looi.

Have you got any more detail, Gary? I believe you, but I'm not seeing it on their Facebook or Web page, nor "breaking news" from any of the usual suspects.

I was just by it and there is a handwritten note on the door stating that there were taking some "much needed rest" from Jan. 2-16. Not sure if anything in their business status changed since the sign was put up.

Three people in the business told me, I must admit I did no research on my own.

Yes, I had been told the same thing but didn't want to say anything until it had been confirmed.

Interesting, perhaps they took a break to reassess and decided to shut down? I can't say it's too surprising as I have not seen a ton of traffic there in a few years. In fact, a number of restaurants along that stretch are unfilled at peak times, sometimes close early, so it might have reached a saturation point, especially with parking being limited.

The one place that is consistently packed in that area is Sapporo -- I don't frequent it, but whatever they are doing, it is working.

Thanks for the official word, Looi. We’ll miss Asiatique, but it had a good run, and there’s still August Moon!
