Mr. Charlie's Fortune Cookie

September 5, 2009

TO ALL PATRONS OF MR. CHARLIE'S FORTUNE COOKIE:

For almost 20 years, Mr. Charlie's Fortune Cookie has provided a wonderful fine-dining experience to thousands of patrons. Unfortunately, the severe downturn of the economy, which began at least a year ago, has had a devastating impact upon numerous high-end restaurants, including Mr. Charlie's Fortune Cookie. The severity of this downturn sadly leaves us no alternative but to close down operations, effective immediately.

We have done our very best to make Mr. Charlie's Fortune Cookie a memorable experience for so many people; but we are swimming against an economic tide which will not permit us to continue at this time. It is my fervent hope that Mr. Charlie’s Fortune Cookie will be back again one day, perhaps even stronger than ever, at a new location.

Sincerely,

Charles Yang
