Element Restaurant Closes Less Than a Month After Debut

New, 1 comment

Well — that was fast. After opening downtown less than a month ago (on July 14), Element Restaurant & Lounge is no more. New-in-town chef Lacey Jane Miller-Cahoj, probably the least recognizable name participating in the all-star 10-10-10 lineup, got honest to blog yesterday:

Well folks, I just got the call. I’m out of a job. I wish I could lend an explanation to you all, but I myself was not given one. The investors decided to pull the plug. So much work, gone. I would have loved to have seen all of you in there, but the decision was left out of my hands.

Major ouch.
