Katie's Pizza Cafe (6611 Clayton Road, Clayton), the stylish pizzeria in Clayton originally opened by Katie Lee Collier, has closed its doors.
The nine-year-old restaurant was apparently shuttered without fanfare or publicity. The restaurant's phone number continues to ring, but there is no way to leave a message and no greeting that provides contact information for the restaurant's owner, Tom Lee. Visitors at three different times over a three-week period report finding locked doors during normal business hours; a customer reports on the restaurant's Facebook page that he was told by employees at the Rock Hill Katie's that the Clayton location had closed.Lee did not respond to a message seeking comment yesterday. Reached by phone this morning, Collier says that the closure took place a few months ago, was owing entirely to her father's retirement.
