Keen-eyed Merc reporters noted this morning that Jook Joint, Ryan Ostler’s Southern barbecue-pan-Asian food cart at 530 SW Washington St., will be closing by month’s end.

The announcement came this morning and was posted to both Jook Joint’s Twitter and Facebook feeds.

“It's with a heavy heart that I am going to be closing the Jook joint at the end of the month. I have decided not to renew my lease here at 10th and Washington,” Ostler wrote. “I want to say thanks to all that came down to my little lemonade stand. I will be looking for a more permanent home in the coming months and plan on doing some dinner events over the summer. If you want to be involved, please come by 530 SW Washington and visit me, I will have a sign up sheet where we can reconnect for future events. Thanks for all the love and support.”
