Lou on Vine closed for vacation?

I've always want to go to Lou but it's been closed since the middle of August. I've never heard of a restaurant going on that long of a vacation in the US. unless it's being bought or going through some kind of major change. Does anyone have any details? I was planning on having a wine and cheese get together some where low key in early Sept. I hope it really does re-open.

  1. Their website says they will reopen next Wednesday, so you're in luck! I agree it seems pretty rare to completely shut down like that for vacation. Maybe they were doing some work on the place?

    1. I remember being in Madrid hoping to score a late lunch, but almost every tapas joint in the city was closed for siesta!

      Nearby low-key alternative - Tasca. Also, if you don't mind the atmosphere, Monsieur Marcel.

      Tasca Restaurant
      8108 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048

      Mr Marcel's Gourmet Market - duplicate

    2. Rare as it is, yeah I know someone who works there, and they really are just closed for vacation. Lou does some long hours there so I can understand his need for some time off...
