Over the last week, a number of Patch users have reported that Fortune Place Buffet closed its doors after only six months of operation.
When the restaurant first opened, Patch users gave the place mixed reviews. Some loved the food. Others didn't:
"Went with the family. Had to loosen the belt 1 notch. Need to make a trip to LA Fitness now so I can go back tomorrow for lunch," Durisko wrote.
"Highly over-priced and the food that wasn't as common appeared to have been sitting there for hours," wrote user Imagen.
Now, the biggest question around University Place is why, why couldn't a new restaurant along the community's busiest corridor survive? Was it the food? Was it something more symptomatic of the local business climate?
Tell us what you think, Patch users, in the comments below. I'd especially like to hear from people who ate there.
