Bashan, a kind of fine dining bastion despite having a northern location in Glendale, has closed its doors after a long run in the neighborhood. Opened nearly ten years ago along Verdugo Blvd just blocks from the bustling town of Montrose, chef Nadav Bashan opened the restaurant after stints at Providence and Michael's.

They made an announcement via newsletter and their website:

With some sadness and boundless optimism for the future we announce the sale of Bashan restaurant. Bashan has always been a small, labor of love, family run restaurant. The chef's relocation and retirement plans for the patriarch have now become a priority.

The sale would only come if the new concept--and planned replacement--shared the passion and dedication for food and community. The beacon for good food will be continued from this location...

We want to thank you for all your patronage through the years--we could not have made it without your support.

We'd like to thank all our dedicated kitchen and staff. The loyalty and passion has not gone unnoticed and will be forever appreciated.

We will miss all of you...

Eater reached out to Bashan to try and discern what the new concept would be, but has not received a response.
