Our anonymous tipster has made us aware that yet another restaurant has closed at University Center in Irvine, across from UCI. Chakra, the upscale Indian restaurant, has shuttered.
This makes five high-profile exits in that shopping mall over the past year alone, including Lee's Sandwiches, the beloved Britta's Cafe, Steelhead Brewing Company, and Asia Noodle Cafe.
Soon a new restaurant will join the freshman class of Gogi, Blaze Pizza, Snowflakes, and the yet-to-be opened outlet of Tender Greens and Yoshuken.
