Tonight is the last night for Hu’s Asian Bistro downtown.
The controversial eatery owned by Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz’s brother in Victoria. B.C. is closing until at least April to undergo "extensive renovations," said a restaurant spokesman.
When the restaurant re-opens in the ballpark this spring, it will have a new theme and a new name, he said. He couldn’t comment on whether it would also have a new owner.
Katz has spent close to $10,000 of taxpayers’ money at his brother David’s restaurant, according to expense documents that show the mayor held multiple business meetings at the Shaw Park eatery over a three-year span.
On April 2, a judge will decide if the taxpayer-funded feasting breached the conflict-of-interest rules.
