Forest Hills—Has Casa de Elian closed?

I'd heard about this place awhile ago and went there on Saturday night to try it, but it was closed when we drove by at around 8pm. I just tried calling, too, and the number is not in service. Did we miss our chance to eat there?

  1. The last that I heard was this place closed, though I know they still have tables and chairs in there and the sign is still up. It's been dark for quite a few weeks at this point.

    I ate there once and enjoyed it, but it's nothing so extraordinary that I haven't been able to get since then at De Mole or the like. Wish this place could have survived, since FH isn't much of a hot bed of good restaurants.
