I just got off the phone with Steven Schultz, owner of Red Sky New American Cuisine and Catering at 2900 N. Swan Road, Suite 100, and he confirmed that he closed the eatery Sunday.
Schultz had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for Red Sky months ago, and he said today that it recently became apparent that it was no longer possible to operate the restaurant and his other eatery, Luna
Bella, which is located a stone's throw from Red Sky at 2990 N. Swan Road, Suite 145.
Some of the employees at Red Sky are now looking for work; others were offered jobs at Luna Bella, Schultz said. He said he'll continue to cater events, running all catering operations out of Luna Bella.
There, that's the bad news. Now for the good stuff.
Schultz has worked up a new menu at Luna Bella, and many Red Sky faves are on it, and for lower prices than they fetched at the now-shuttered eatery.
Schultz is also introducing new specials at Luna Bella (www.lunabellarestaurant.com; 325-3895), to include a seafood buffet, date night specials featuring multiple courses for two for less than $40, and other wallet-friendly deals.
