    Chef Charlie Trotter has been drawing crowds to his Armitage namesake for years.

    Foodie Steve Dolinsky noted Sunday that chef Charlie Trotter is shuttering his Las Vegas restaurant after only two years in operation.

    Dolinsky says timing -- the restaurant was opened just before the recession began -- as well as location -- it's under an escalator in a shopping mall -- contributed to its demise.

    But according to Dolinsky, those may not be the only reasons. Trotter is developing a reputation as a man who doesn't know what he wants -- changing his mind midway through projects, or shutting down restaurants after short runs.

    Trotter did make up his mind about one partnership this year. He got his logo on United Airlines' first-class menu.

    In Chicago, though, Trotter's reputation is still one of unparalleled quality in a dining experience.
