Los Angles is down another restaurant today, as Eater has confirmed that the only recently-opened XO on Beverly is officially closed. A call to the restaurant and marketplace this afternoon confirms the shutter.
XO’s closure is among the speedier shutdowns seen in recent memory, having only lasted six months. The place also would have seemed to benefit from the talents of opening chef Michael Hung, but ultimately the project just couldn’t find its footing with locals, nearby Grove tourists, or anyone else it seems. Now the place is closed up officially, and Hung has moved on to a new seafood and wine bar in Glendale.
The pull for XO in the neighborhood was supposed to be its marketplace and all-day menu (including drinks), just like the previous tenant Stir Market — which, similarly, had been overseen at first by none other than Jet Tila. There’s no word on what’s to come next at the property, but XO on Beverly’s last night of service was yesterday.
