The doors are locked. Stacks of mail have piled up outside. Their website is down, and nobody's answering the phone. All signs point to last call at Flash's, the Back Bay cocktail lounge and restaurant known for succulent garlic fries.


A neighborhood tipster for Boston Restaurant Talk reports that the place looks closed, and we've also tried to call, with no answer. Always sad when a restaurant shutters without even a farewell — unlike, say, All Asia, which hosts a possibly wild and crazy haggling party this weekend, where they'll sell off their furniture.

Update: Boston Restaurant Talk confirms the sad news. Flash's is gone for good.
