Discouraged

There's a note on the "tidbit" section of the Indy Ethnic Food site that Shen Yang closed! We are so sorry to hear that since they served us some excellent dim sum.

When I went by there last Saturday, there was a sign on the door that said they were closed for renovation. So don't lose hope quite yet.

Oh, thanks for that glimmer of hope!! We would be crushed if they were gone forever.

"Closed for renovation", on a restaurant door, usually is a lie.

If they are actually rebuilding the place, the sign normally says when they expect to be open again.

If they can get someone to buy the place, they'll get a higher price for "restaurant with established trade" than for "vacant restaurant building".

The head of Harbor Bank in Baltimore spoke on CSPAN before Congress in November. He said restaurant business was down 50%. That's enough to put a lot of restaurants out of business. Their customers will go to the restaurants that remain, and they'll survive.

Owning a restaurant means hard work and long hours. I have a lot of respect for those who do it adequately, and even more for those who do it well.
