Update: Loro closed Tuesday following smoke-related evacuation

Update: Loro will be closed all day Tuesday following the smoke incident Monday night.

Some team members at Loro smelled smoke Monday night, leading to an evacuation and a visit from the Austin Fire and Police departments. While nobody was hurt, the incident, which Loro says made the restaurant get a little smokier than usual, has led the Asian smokehouse to close for lunch Tuesday. Management has not yet decided whether the restaurant on South Lamar will be open for dinner, but keep an eye on their Facebook and Instagram for updates.
