Liu Brothers has been sold, and their last day as is will be 12/31.
Allred's going to be bummed.
As I am. Been going there for lunch probably 3 times a month recently, on days when I split time in our Batavia and Carol Stream offices. D and I had dinner last week and Kevin told us about a sale in which the main chef was staying on. That deal fell through, and the other buyers are taking over everything with their own people. Bummer.
The new owners bought everything including the name and recipes. The brothers are staying on for a time to train the new staff and teach them the recipes. The new ownership will also keep it BYO. Hopefully the new chef is a quick study.
If they replaced the kids currently serving tables, I would not be upset. I am hoping for the best.
