Nabi has left the building.....

Sadly, one of my very favorite restaurants has closed. The scuttlebutt around the lower Westheimer area is that Chef Ji Kang is striking out in a new direction. That he sold Nabi to pursue a new concept in dining. I have not a clue what that is, but I wish him the very very best. Ji is a talented chef with an exceptional table-side manner. He will be missed in the neighborhood.

I stopped by the Nabi building just to see for myself what was going on, the door was a jar, I called in to see if anyone would come to the front of the restaurant, a young man did. "What happened to Chef Ji Kang, to Nabi?" I asked, trying not to sound too whiny. He didn't know the details, but he did tell me that Nabi will be transformed into a Mexican Restaurant in two months. I am a bit unsure about this new development, but maybe it stems from my disappointment that Nabi is gone. I will not pass judgement until I have taken fork to mouth and tasted the food at this new Mexican restaurant.

Chef Ji Kang all the best to you. Don't be a stranger. Let us know where you plan to cook next. Love your food.

Thanks for the memories!!! Yummmm!!!
