In 2008 Esquire named Palate Food + Wine one of the year's best new restaurants, and shortly thereafter Patric Kuh at LAmag cited Palate as THE best new restaurant of the year. So, it's sad to hear that after four years of business, chef Octavio Becerra's farm-to-table restaurant and wine bar has closed doors effective this past Friday. Supposedly, this shutter was abrupt and employees were not given any notice. A sign posted to the door reads as follows: "Palate Food + Wine will be temporarily closed for re-organization. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to our reincarnation soon..."
