LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Lynn's Paradise Cafe, a long-time nationally-known restaurant and Highlands landmark, closed suddenly Friday night, according to a statement from proprietor Lynn Winter.
The statement, released early Saturday morning, gave no reason for the sudden closing. It came a few days after a former employee emailed news outlets her complaints about a change in tipping procedures for servers and other workers.
"As of January 11, 2013 Lynn's Paradise Café has closed its doors.
"Thank you to all of our loyal customers and faithful employees for making it possible to run a 22-year business.
"It's been a great run and we've had a ton of fun. The time has come to move on to new creative ventures," Winter's statement read.
The restaurant first opened along Frankfort Avenue and moved to Barret Avenue in the Highlands in the mid-1990s. A popular stop for cable TV food programs, it became nationally known for its unusual dishes and decor. It also became a popular tourist attraction.
The Lynn's Paradise Cafe website and Facebook page were still active early Saturday morning. One person already had opened a "Save Lynn's" Facebook page by 4 a.m.
