alkymists opened in mid-September at 140 University Ave., the corner space previously home to Palo Alto Grill for 15 months and before that, Miyake.
alkymists served world-fusion food and planned to host free monthly brunches for low-income, battered or homeless women and their children, as well as teach them about nutrition and health.
Owner Luka Dvornik did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

(In the comments section on the listing: "Seller invested over $1.0 million in the past two years. Please do not talk to employees.")
