Rapour ends its run

This is why we can’t have nice things.

As I arrived to work today, I was greeted by David Allen, who told me that he received word that Rancho Cucamonga’s Rapour Restaurant and Lounge had shut down.

It’s a shame…and I’m not just saying that because they quoted me in their advertising.

The restaurant opened in November 2011 with great fanfare, an admirable goal and impressive pedigrees.

We were privileged to attend its grand opening, and everything that night was spot-on.

At the time, I thought the trendy lounge would be “the go-to place for bachelorette and girls-night-out birthday parties.”

Alas, it was not to be.

We visited Rapour a few times since the grand opening and were always impressed with the food and the service.

I will regret not taking the time to experience the restaurant’s Sunday brunch.

We will definitely miss Rapour, easily one of the best independent restaurants in the Inland Empire.
