Jordan Naftal out of Maple Lawn steakhouse
I checked my work e-mail before I went to bed last night (why do I do that?) and found an e-mail from Carlos Venegas, an owner of Ranazul in Maple Lawn, which said this:Jordan’s Steakhouse in Ellicott City having been hit hard by the recession and unable to recover, has withdrawn from the new venture in Maple Lawn. As a gesture of good will for those that purchased gift cards, they will be honored at Carlos’ Steakhouse at 100% of the value. ...
At least I now have an answer for the e-mail from this reader:
I just finished reading about the closing of Jordan's in Ellicott City. Do you have any way of finding out what I can do to redeem the $100.00 gift card to Jordan's I received for my birthday in June?
Let me say once again that if you have a restaurant gift certificate, use it. Right away. Do not wait two months.
By the way, the comments under the Jordan's entries have gotten so ugly and repetitive that I've closed them to any further posts. I have a lot of sympathy for the people who worked at Jordan's and weren't paid, but this isn't the place to do something about it. I'll delete comments in the same vein that are posted below if they don't contribute anything new to the discussion.
