China Gourmet, located at 3739 University Blvd for the last 35 years, has announced earlier this month that the restaurant will be closing permanently at the end of December. The restaurant cites the retirement of “key personnel” as the main reason, stating that it “just would not be China Gourmet” without them. What’s next for the space? The owners also announced that they’ll be remodeling and reopening as an “American sports-themed restaurant” in the future. Full message by China Gourmet below:
“To Our Loyal Patrons and Friends,
We are so grateful for your support over the last 35 years. It was a very emotional decision, but after much consideration, we have decided to close China Gourmet at the end of December. Many of our key personnel are retiring, and without them, it just would not be China Gourmet. We will be remodeling and re-opening as an American sports-themed restaurant. We hope to provide the area with another quality establishment and look forward to serving you in the future.
With our most sincere appreciation, we thank you.
Your China Gourmet Family”
