Things have been dark at Zest Spirited Dining lately.
Recently, a sign posted on the door of the once-bustling Central Phoenix restaurant said, "Sorry! We are closed for renovations."
But that was pretty fishy. Closed for renovations during the holidays, the time of year when people might actually justify a nice dinner out in the midst of a poor economy?
Well, a friend of mine somehow made a reservation through Zest's website a few days ago, but showed up at the scheduled time to find the place locked up. Now the site is down, and the phone number isn't working. I'm betting that those renovations never happened...
