Aura World Fusion in Midtown Closes Its Doors

Midtown restaurant Aura World Fusion has shuttered, quietly closing its doors earlier this month. Having opened in the fall of 2012 in the property formerly home to Virago, Aura was the latest project from local restaurant vet Mathew Igwonobe, best known for his Quails Restaurant in Brentwood, which closed in 2002. The closing doesn't come as too much of a surprise, as the restaurant had been experiencing financial difficulties, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection back in February. Igwonobe and the leasing agent, whose signage now dots the building, could not be reached for comment, so be sure to check back to see what's next for the property.
