change of ownership sign in window of Oaxacan Kitchen - what gives? Looks like another concept coming in ("mediterranean")
-----The Oaxacan Kitchen2323 Birch St, Palo Alto, CA 94306
The owner saw my post on Yelp and wrote to tell me that they haven't closed! (We saw the same sign that you did.) I'm out of town so haven't been able to go by to check.
I live around the corner. It's always nearly full but we've never waited longer than 5 minutes for a table.
Since you're so close by, can you tell us what the status is? Open, closed, changed to something else?
It is closing! They are closing mid-September but will still be doing area farmers markets. I haven't been in so I don't know the details but there was a blurb in the Palo Alto weekly.
Thanks for your follow-up. I found the piece in the Weekly,http://www.paloaltoonline.com/weekly/...
Like others, i'm surprised by the closing. There was always a crowd waiting outside whenever I drove by.
Wow, very surprised. The place was packed for the first 6 months, so we stopped going (and because the mole didn't really match our memories of Oaxaca).
Has business been bad for them?
Was Yogi finally right, "No one goes there any more; it's too crowded."
Seemed pretty busy to me every time I went, and the food was good overall - especially the salsas. Chef and wife do culinary trips, so maybe they decided that venture and wholesale/farmers market sales were enough?
Glad it's not lack of appreciation! The food was certainly decent.
