Mt. Everest has peaked, and space will become Lucy's

When I reviewed Mt. Everest Restaurant & Bar this spring, I was especially enamored of the lunch buffet. Far from the boring, all-you-can-eat-of-this-mediocre food orgies that mark most buffets in this town, Mt. Everest's buffet featured some of the kitchen's strangest, and most enjoyable, Nepalese and northern Indian offerings.

But that buffet -- along with the eatery itself -- is no more.

The windows of the strip mall space on South Sheridan are papered over, and a sign on the door proclaims that Mt. Everest is closed, with "Lucy's" coming in its place.

And though we're not yet sure just what Lucy's is, it doesn't exactly sound like the kind of place that will serve goat curry at a lunch buffet.
