What happened to Eat a Pita on Fairfax?

It appears that Eat a Pita on Fairfax is closed, despite saying they're open 364 (?) days a year. Does anyone know the scoop?

  1. No great loss if they're gone for good. They had gone significantly downhill as of late.

    1. i noticed they were shut down yesterday. haven't been there in a while, but when i used to go it was pretty decent.

      1. I'm not sure. I drive by anytime I'm in the area, hoping they just took a long vacation or something, but there's no signage regarding any closure or anything.

        I'll be pretty disappointed if they're gone as they've been a favorite haunt for years. But unfortunately, they appear to be gone without any explanation. If anyone hears otherwise, would love to know the scoop.

        1. I believe that Eat A Pita had the same owners as the recently shuttered Noura Cafe on Melrose. Word is that Noura closed because the owner got tired of the business. Don't know if that's true or not...

          1. I read a post either here on Eater L.A. that the lease was up for the property, and they did not sign an extension.

              Can you please send me a link to this story? I'd like to read more about the lease owners (I like the location)

            2. I also don't think it's any great loss. Back in the 1980s, Eat a Pita was great, but I when I went there in the past year for old time's sake, it was pretty average, at best.

              1. I drive by every day and it's closed. I liked the vibe there, nice outdoor seating, kinda funky, but I have to concur that the food isn't bad, but pretty average.

                1. Too bad the location is too small for CHILI MY SOUL. But I'm confident someone else will move in to that space and do well, like T on Fairfax.

                  Erm, wait, never mind...

                  1. There used to be a place accross the street (same side of fairfax) that was basically the same stuff, but kosher (so a little more expensive)
