Chichen Itza 6th Street Closing?

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

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

    1. This is so 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.

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

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

            1. 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.
