"I can't do it anymore," says chef Gary Williams.
A sign posted on the windows of downtown DejaVu read, "Happy New Years. Closed Until Further Notice. Sorry & Thank you."
Williams says business had been dead. "It was beating me down," he says. He's closed the spot for good.
BUT, it's not all bad news. Williams says some folks are working to get him back into the Florida street location — the spot where it began years ago. He's shooting to be back open in late February or early March.
"You know me," Williams says. "I'll be back."
