The New Year is all about renewal, even if that means by closing one door to step through another. And so, The Shutter Report, were you'll find news about restaurant closings around town. Got something for us? In the tip jar, please.
After almost seven years, Kimmy Tang will shutter her French and Vietnamese-inspired Michelia this month, closing in two weeks. The Cedars-Sinai staffers will weep. Tang says it's just "to take a break," but may open in another location one day. That Third Street location would be a commodity for someone else, maybe a permanent spot for Ludobites now that it ended at Breadbar a few doors away? Ah, dare to dream.
