Is Lucky Buddha (3701 South Jefferson Avenue; 314-833-4568), the South Jefferson restaurant best known for its "Porkapocalypse" sandwich, headed for an unlucky 2016?
According to its Facebook page, the Asian fusion and craft cocktail spot closed around December 27th "for the Christmas holidays." Yet more than a week into the new year, it remains shuttered, drawing speculation about its future.
An unnamed spokesperson for the restaurant insists the closure is temporary, citing a death in the family. However, even when pressed, he would not confirm a date for when the restaurant would reopen, stating only, "We'll let you know."
