Matsuya is closed???

I drove by Matsuya tonight. It's on Clark St., south of Addison. Have been going there for years. I couldn't tell if it is gone for good or is being remodeled or something...was driving. But it looked pretty gone... Does anyone know what's up?

Chinalite out of business

I think Chinalite on Southport is out of business. They were closed on Friday night and have a 'For Rent' sign posted.
I loved their food for delivery...some of my favorite food in Chicago, and healthier with all the veggies, non-goopy sauces, and no MSG. Huge portions, great eggrolls(with peanut butter), really good food.
They were sometimes very rude at the restaurant itself. Not letting people come in if they were closing in 30-45 mins, etc. I think they had a thriving delivery business, but wonder if their manner towards people in the restaurant played any part in their closing, or if it was just the economy.

Good places w/ coupons???

I have some coupons for
There is a whole long list of eligible restaurants but I have not had time to research all of them. I am looking for places with in 5 miles of 60618. I'd prefer to use the coupons that have a $35 minimum with a $25 coupon, rather than a $50 min. but I would consider the more expensive ones if the places are really good. I really like Italian and Japanese food, and also Brunch, but would really consider anything. Does anyone know of any good places on the site?

Thanks...I will also add my own feedback as I use the coupons.

Need *nice* Sunday Brunch place for Aunt's B-Day

My aunt is visiting from London and would like a nice Sunday brunch place to celebrate her 60th birthday. She has had a lot of very good food all over the world. We are on the N. Side, so N. side or downtown would be good. I would like a few recos for Buffets, and a few recos for Non-buffets. Price can be up to $30-$40 per person. Thanks!!!!!

Suggestions for good restaurants in AKRON

Hi -- Am going to Akron for a wedding weekend, and am wondering if anyone can suggest some good restaurants that are inexpensive or moderate cost for meals that are not included in the wedding festivities. Having some veggie or fish options on menu would be helpful. Also possibly will need lunch on the drive between Cleveland and Akron. Thanks!
