Another Mill Avenue restaurant has just closed its doors. The question is, is it for now, or forever?
Sucker Punch Sally's Old School Diner closed last night. According to staff, it's a temporary thing, due to air conditioning problems, and the restaurant will reopen on September 1 after a remodel.
According to my source, the inside track says this is not the case, and that Sally's a goner.
In any case, this is the second player on Mill to shut down in the past week, and if things really do happen in threes, I'm wondering who's next. Knock on wood . . .
