Keeping fellow Chowhounds apprised of restaurant closings.

fruglescot | Feb 13, 200806:44 PM


It has been a most disappointing week for this Chowhound in regard to sampling the eclectic, culinary offerings scouted out through this otherwise helpful website. Two separate restaurant locations were simply 'not available',
The CORVINA restaurant on Kingston Road, whose "chicken paprika", was the object of my desire for dinner after learning here about it's remarkable taste, was discovered to be (presumably ) closed and out of business. A call for a takeout order yielded a recorded message only........... "THE NUMBER YOU HAVE REACHED IS NOT IN SERVICE"
Tonight, after begging here for suggestions (SEE "February is "Black History" month- African Restaurant Suggestions?) reading several reviews, studing entrees, much anticipation and speculation about the upcoming experience, I was abruptly notified that the selected establishment was ..."CLOSED FOR A FEW WEEKS DUE TO RENOVATIONS"
SIMBA'S GRILL on Donlands Ave, according to the voice on the phone, presumably one of the principal owners, is TEMPORARILY CLOSED and will remain unopen for 2 or 3 weeks while it undergoes some form of RENOVATION.
Thank you in advance.
Can you empathize, if this same sort of fate has befallen you even once in a week's time.
As a knowledgeable collective of eyes and ears what can be done to help prevent this type of occurence?
