Just about every commenter guessed that this anonymouos real estate listing was for Food Court LA, the smallish bistro that opened only a year ago, and according to Blackburn & Sweetzer, it's officially closed. That lasted about six months. B&S commenters suggest bad management and money woes (bounced checks to vendors,"looking for new investors"), but a bad economy and being next to Joan's on Third, which is always busy, could have easily had something to do with it. We didn't like the name very much and didn't have a chance to check it out, but neighbors hopeful for something easy, inexpensive and walkable found it hit or miss.
