El Buda, the Latin-Asian fusion restaurant inside the Bumby Arcade on Church Street, has succumbed to the jinx that saw scores of restaurants (Maddey's Craft & Cru, Eternal Tap, Chicago's Stuffed Pizza, Brick & Fire, Absinthe Bistro) shutter in the beautiful space.

The restaurant, by chef Roberto Treviño and business partner Luis Garcia, was well received when it opened last December — hardly a surprise given Trevino's culinary cred.

Attempts to call the restaurant were met by a busy signal, but Treviño reached out to me to say simply:

"Sometimes things just don't click, but I'm feeling great and am certainly motivated to keep cooking. I'm searching for that perfect flavor. The quest continues."

The good news is that he'll continue that quest right here in Orlando.

Stay tuned.
