Vox Table closed suddenly yesterday before Valentine’s Day dinner

We received an email this morning from a frustrated reader. They weren’t frustrated with us (yea!) but with the fact that they had received an email yesterday afternoon at 3 p.m. alerting them that Vox Table had closed suddenly due to a maintenance issue and therefore the emailer’s Valentine’s dinner reservation could not be honored. The email (which we’ve seen) actually went out, apparently, to all people who had a reservation. The restaurant responded to aggravated diners with a list of restaurants that still had reservations and with phone numbers for those restaurants.

It is unclear if the closure is permanent. We went by the restaurant this afternoon and found a sign on the door that stated the following: “Due to reoccurring maintenance issues, we will be closed this evening. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

We have reached out to Vox for more details on the closure. Their Tex-Mex offshoot, El Burro, closed last year after only six months in business. It was one of the most recent in a string of shutters at the Lamar Union.
