The saga of Loft District restaurant Red -- as detailed in my colleague Kristen Hinman's must-read piece from last week's paper -- continues.

Hinman's article was published online on Wednesday, March 4. At that time, Red had reopened. However, as of 5:15 p.m. today, when Red should have been open for dinner, the restaurant was dark, and the front door was padlocked shut.

This morning I called both of Red's original owners, Kirk Appazeller and Derek Onstott, and asked whether Red had closed for good. Each declined to comment. Calls to the restaurant itself went to a message stating that "Memory is full" and asking for an input code.

More as I learn it.
