V Modern Thai to Close Sunday

ANOTHER UPDATE: This is only getting weirder, so we added a follow-up post.

UPDATE (by Dan Gibson): A very angry person named Ernie Mennes, who claimed to be the managing partner of V Modern Thai, called to say that the restaurant isn't closing and that he's filing a police report against us for this post. Mennes isn't listed on the Corporation Commission listing for the restaurant, although he posted on V's page in December discussing a "national & international roll-out", but we are making an effort to confirm with someone from the actual restaurant what's going on.

The always evolving downtown scene will apparently lose another restaurant this week. We have learned from a reliable source that V Modern Thai has announced its last business day will be Sunday, May 10. Restaurant owner Vila Jarrell renamed the restaurant —originally Vila Thai Cuisine—and moved from University Boulevard to its current location on 9 East Congress Street in 2011. 

Here's a tweet from KGUN producer Ken Carr's What's Up Tucson feed:


V Modern Thai restaurant in downtown Tucson is closing for good this Sunday. You still have a few days to get in for one last meal.— Whats Up Tucson (@whatsuptucson) May 6, 2014

Somewhat strangely, the restaurant's Facebook page doesn't mention the closing and is still putting up photos of dishes this morning.

Jarrell couldn't be reached for comment, but we'll let you know if and when we hear an update.
