In the past few weeks, neither the city of St. Louis' occupancy permit office, the Loop Business Association nor Chubbies' neighbors could figure out if owner Wally Othman was gone for good, or if the delicious restaurant would be back.

Neither Othman nor his manager Suma Abdallah returned calls for comment yesterday, but we'll update with anything we find out. In the meantime, celebrate with a burger.
