Modern Indonesian restaurant Rinjani seems to have closed, at least temporarily, about a month ago in Glendale’s Exchange project after a ten month run. Eater reached out to the restaurant’s representatives to confirm a total closure, but Rinjani hasn’t posted anything on social media since late August. The restaurant’s Yelp page shows only indefinitely closed hours.
Owners Mira and Rebecca Setiabudhi prepared a tight selection of Indonesian comfort dishes in small but shareable plates that worked as a great introduction to one of Southeast Asia’s lesser known cuisines.
Rinjani never received a full review from any critic, though Yelpers and Time Out did shine some light on the excellent curries and oxtail soup. Modern Indonesian fare has had a bit of a moment in the past year, with the stellar Kasih debuting in Little Tokyo while Mr. Sate opened in sleepier Palms neighborhood just steps from longtime Indonesian restaurant Simpang Asia. Bone Kettle also brought a slew of Indonesian flavors in a modern setting in the heart of Old Town Pasadena.
