Forest Hills—Has Casa de Elian closed?

  • 1

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.
