A comment on a prior post reminded me that Fortune Star Buffet in Jessup was locked and closed when I passed by over the weekend.
The comment asked whether anyone knows why Fortune Star closed. I was wondering whether the closing was temporary or permanent when I peered through the glass doors. I think the side said "Closed Today." I couldn't see into the dining room to tell if the restaurant was still set up.
Fortune Star ran a large buffet of Chinese and American food. It was one of the first places that I wrote about in 2008, but I have to admit that I haven't been back in years.
(Update: There is a comment below that says the closing is temporary.)
