The restaurant obituaries are flying into our desk of late.

It saddens us to report that Chef/owner Jeff Liu’s nationally respected Bistro 88 out in Westlake has been padlocked, shuttered and appears closed for good.

Liu has been part of the restaurant scene in Austin since the 1990’s and we’ve eaten many delicious meals at his restaurants over the years.

We loved Liu’s Noodle-ism on 5th st. downtown and still fondly recall the odd but wonderful black pepper crusted hamburger the little Taiwanese kitchen put out.

We’re hoping Chef Liu lands on his feet so we can write a “Don’t Call It A Comeback” piece soon.
