The Wolfgang Puck Cafe on Fallsview Boulevard in Niagara Falls opened with high expectations and a VIP gala event in June 2005, but the sign has now come down and the doors are closed.
No one seems interested in talking about what happened.
Carolyn Bones, president of the Niagara Falls Chamber of Commerce, said the restaurant was a member of their organization, but cancelled its membership last November. She had no further details.
Neither did Mayor Ted Salci's office or the Business Development Office at city hall.
Lee Carr, marketing manager at the Skylon Tower, would offer no comment on the record.
The restaurant closed near the end of November.
Another business that opened almost at the same time as the restaurant, Classic Iron Motorcycle Museum on Victoria Avenue, is also gone.
The museum housed a collection of vintage and custom motorcycles from 1916 to the present.
Old newspapers cover the front window of that business and their phone number is out of service.
