Bye, bye xiao long bao: Tao Tao Noodle Bar goes dark
Owners David Lee and May Sung, who opened Chopsticks China Bistro, their first Chinese restaurant, on Federal Boulevard in 2008 and then resurrected it in swanky suburbia, where it was later seized for non-payment of taxes, took a hiatus before settling on Aurora for their third restaurant, which they named Tao Tao Noodle Bar.
So much for that whole "third time's a charm" malarkey. A "closed" sign that was visible on the door last week -- for several consecutive days -- has now dropped to the pavement, no one answers the phone, the space is dark and the parking lot is vacant, all signs that point to another (great) restaurant that's shuttered.
There's only one word for that: suckage.
