l'osteria del forno, tu lan -- closed for renovations

phat_phil | Feb 5, 200411:15 PM     2

On tuesday, I was thwarted in an attempt to eat at Tu Lan. The restaurant is almost completely gutted--the stove remains. The owner saw me and said, "sorry...sorry...thank you for coming ... come in two weeks!" the sign said renovations would continue through feb. 22

And again, tonight, I intended to eat at l'osteria del forno, and it was gutted! a sign said they would be open again by valentine's day -- it seems unbelieveable.

Is it something I said? Or maybe 'tis the season to remodel.

(BTW, my contingencies -- shalimar on tuesday and gino pollaio tonight -- left me satisfied enough.)
