It has not been a good month for restaurants. It appears that Chi Sushi Sake (4 North Euclid Avenue; 314-367-2209) in the Central West End is closed. There is no sign on the door, but the windows are completely papered up.

We named it best sushi in 2006, 2009 and 2012 and best happy hour in 2009. It's co-owned by restaurateur Jae Yoo, but we were unable to get in touch with him for comment. The phone at Chi went unanswered. We'll update if we hear from him.
