Cooking Girl at 315 Fairview in the Heights is closed for business starting today. Don't panic, though, because the closure is only temporary, according to a server at Pepper Twins, its sister restaurant at 1915 West Gray.

The server mentioned that the closure was due to an "ordinance by the city of Houston," and added that city workers are supposed to fix the piping/sewage lines under the restaurant. He told us that the repairs should take one or two months to complete.

We hope the maintenance doesn't last too long. Cooking Girl is popular for its traditional Szechuan cuisine, and its absence will definitely be felt in the neighborhood.
