What happened to Verbena?

Drove past Verbena around 8 last night and all the lights were off. Is this a bad sign? Also, their website looks to no longer be active. If this does mean the demise of Verbena, that’s too bad, I had a yummy meal there and I was looking forward to trying it again.

UPDATE from Style:

Verbena: The once-bustling, upscale restaurant at Floyd and Robinson streets also closed Jan.1, though the brand may reappear somewhere else in the future. Commercial filmmaker and Fan resident Sunny Zhao is preparing to purchase the property and will reopen it next month as Fan House. The space will be reconfigured with a big bar downstairs and an East-meets-West menu with ideas collected on Zhao’s world travels.
