Closed: Sunshine Moon Peking Pub

Well, that was quick.

Condolences are flying on Twitter and Facebook, after Sunshine Moon Peking Pub -- the newish Chinese spot that got good buzz from our former critic Michele Laudig and others -- abruptly announced today on its Facebook page that it's no more:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we sadly announce the closing of our restaurant tonight at 10 PM. We are so grateful for everyone's support and love. Please visit our other restaurant 5th and Wine. Thank you.
