When did Judd's close? Big loss.
That spot seems like a revolving door

It closed a while ago, at least 1.5 months, under the pretense of renovations, which 99% of the time means closed for good. According to a post on the great kosher food group, the rent was too high, but he is now looking for somewhere else. But a lot of times these restaurants open up a physical location just to get their name out there and close the physical store once they've built up a solid catering clientele, because that's where the money is.

Got it. It has a for rent sign now

Speaking of restaurants, I highly recommend the all-you-can-eat Wok Tov deal on Monday nights. If you order to go, they give you a very large container for the food and sides, and smaller container for sushi, and then a pint container for soup. All for $18.99. I have been known to reverse the plates (which is permissible), and essentially stuff 6 rolls of sushi into the large container, plus a generous serving of meat into the smaller container.

PS: I have no connection to Wok Tov other than liking greasy Chinese food.

Agreed, They have upped their game big time. Don't know about the buffet, but the regular menu has improved.

i went first week of all u can eat. felt the hot spread was a bit limited (would love to have ability to try funkier but i get they dont want to just throw out food). the sushi though is what sold me as they included funkier rolls etc. hope to go again soon and try the takeout :). wok tov has the best and most consistent beef lo mein (and i've had from lots of places) and their dark meat major tso is perfect for that breaded chinese chicken fix.
no connection either, but the new owner/manager is a sweetheart of a guy.

I didn't notice that. I'm pretty sure that their lunch specials actually dropped in price.

I was there Monday and was unimpressed. The Chinese is very limited. The sesame chicken was decent but ran out quickly and it takes time to be refilled. They had fried and white rice. Chicken w garlic sauce but the chicken looked strange. Beef w garlic sauce and the beef was raw. The egg rolls were good but they ran out of that quickly too. The sushi was good for those who like fish but I donít eat fish.

reach out to the owner and tell him. I was there Monday as well and told him after that they were not replenishing quickly. He apologized and thanked me for the feedback.

I happen to eat my $19 worth of Sushi so I was ok :)
