Lucky Foo’s, the American izakaya in the southeast that opened in November 2014, shuttered, a tipster reports. The 5,000-square-foot featured four different dining areas with seating for up to 180 guests. Owner Michael Fuller announced the closing on Facebook.

To our loyal patrons, friends, family, and colleagues,

It brings me a great sadness to inform all that Lucky Foo’s at 8955 S. Eastern Avenue in Las Vegas is officially closed permanently.

Thank you to all of those that supported and believed in us for the past two years. We truly enjoyed delivering you our best day in and day out.

A special heart felt thank you goes out to all those team members that stuck it out through the good and bad to the very end. As those in the industry know, it was never an easy stroll.

From this challenge, we learned. Got smart, and became stronger for the experience. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to work with you all and the time spent on this endeavor.

I truly apologize for any inconvenience this causes anyone due to no longer being able to enjoy any of our exclusive dishes such as Forbidden black rice bowl, lemon roll, charred edamame, secret weapon, chicken wings, short ribs, Foo burger, french fries or other signature items at this time. They will all be surely missed.

All the best!

Michael Fuller

The restaurant featured a Buddha patio, a Kimmi Bar with a Kimmi doll collection, the Foo Square main room with its tatami mats and the Belly of the Dragon with a massive mural by local artist Sean Clauretie. Lucky Foo used reclaimed and salvaged materials from Hamada, the former restaurant on East Flamingo Road. The tatami mats, hand-painted Taiko Asian drums, roof tiles, and icons from various Asian cultures were all salvaged from the restaurant.
