Columbia Lakefront Restaurant Closes
A well-reviewed restaurant in downtown Columbia has shut its doors.
Red Pearl, the lakefront Chinese restaurant, has closed its doors and cleaned out its tables.
A Howard Hughes Co. spokesperson confirmed Red Pearl is closed for good. Howard Hughes owns the building, but would not comment on what may be moving in next.
A hostess at neighboring Sushi Sono said the restaurant packed up about two weeks ago, without indicating why.

The restaurant, which received popular reviews from online restaurant rating sites like Yelp and Urbanspoon, was empty on Wednesday afternoon with its tables out of sight, doors locked and lights off.
Red Pearl's phone number no longer rings and its website, although still up, gives no indication that they have closed or why.
