A gentleman came out of a business a couple of doors down and told me they are closed permanently, but he didn't speak very good English and I certainly can't verify. Does anyone know what's going on? As much as I love cart service, Shui Wah is my favorite spot for dim sum in Chicago. Well, Hong Min used to be my favorite and we all know how that story ended.
So I'd appreciate any intel here. And if I find anything further, I'll follow up.

I happened to be there on Monday and I was told the owner is retiring, I was then introduced to a woman who came out of the kitchen who looked like she was doing the cooking and she said she was the retiree. They were having a party to celebrate later and we were given extra treats for being loyal customers. This was my favorite place for dim sum and I'm bereft. Happy Chef is also gone so I guess that leaves Cai or Phoenix. I'm really sad we lost this place.
