I am not sure what is up with chef Steven Schultz's The New Red Sky and Luna Bar up at 2990 N. Swan Road, in Plaza Palomino. The notification on the place's website says it's closed for several weeks for customer's "safety and comfort" during construction. But it's said that for far longer than several weeks, so who knows.
Picazzo's Organic Italian Kitchen, which has been offering up decent Italian fare and a slew of gluten-free options at 7850 N. Oracle Road for a while now, is also closed. Again, not sure if it's for good, but the phone has been disconnected. Picazzo's opened and closed more than once in the past couple of years.
Le Delice Bakery and Cafe at 7245 E. Tanque Verde Road has also closed for the umpteenth time. This place has changed owners several times, falling back into the hands of original owners Maurice and Nicole Cochard in late 2010. The phone is disconnected, and nobody's home.
And, as mentioned earlier this week, Breathe, Drink and Design just off of Fourth Avenue has also closed.
