Chichen Itza 6th Street Closing?

Mattapoisett in LA Sep 3, 2009 12:26 PM

Dommy and I got an Email from Chichen Itza saying they were closing the 6th street Location and adding dinner service at the Mercado. We are on the Acela between DC and Boston and can't Go to the closing party the note said would happen tonight. We are heartbroken, but glad that they will still be around.

Take Care

    Gaqhhh! I'm crushed! Where will I get Pan De Cazon for the Woman in The Hat on the way home from work? . . and the Westsiders working downtown, the ones who thought even the 6th Street location was in "a dicey part of town"; what will possibly induce them to go to dinner at the Mercado?

      Just heartbreaking. And I'm surprised, because the last three times I was there, it was really busy--even though it was a Sunday night.

        This sucks. These guys put out great food that you cant easily find elsewhere...its a real shame.

          It's the sign of the times. A setback indeed, but they will hang in there at La Paloma.

            This is so depressing....it makes me angry that a place with such great food and people who put so much heart into it has to close down, while the el torito's and such stay open

              Agreed. A sad day. Atleast they're still at the Mercado.

                The thing is... There are no El Torito's in MacArthur Park, and I don't think the El Torito company or any smart restauranteur would open there.

                Truly sad!.. We're at the Music Center tonight for Spamalot or else we'd go and report.
