A walk past 1000 E. Locust St. in Riverwest this evening revealed that Tuk’s Thai Kitchen, which opened in July 2014, has closed.

Although there’s no indication of when the closure took effect, a sign posted on the door verifies that the restaurant is no longer in business. An additional check on Facebook shows that the restaurant’s page has also been removed.

The building itself has seen a stream of tenants, most recently Antonio’s Pizza, but also  Milano Pizza, Luna Pizza, 4 To 4 Pizza And Wings and JAX Pizza among others.

We'll certainly be watching with interest to see what crops up in the space. Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for details as they develop.
