San Diego CLOSED Restaurants - 2013 edition

Honkman reported that Flavor Del Mar has closed. I'm not sure if this is a coincidence along with the Harvest Ranch Market's recent closure:

    Astronomical rent associated by a landlord who does nothing to promote the Plaza and drive business are some of the reasons why half of the spaces at the Plaza are empty and most businesses have failed.

      Figured it was something like that. Can you imagine not being able fill a space like that in Del Mar?

      Maybe the place is more valuable to the landlord as a tax write off?

        It is a huge space with a difficult layout. I am curious to see who will move in and if they can make it work since zero $ is spent on promoting the shopping center. With the Flower Hills mall coming back strong, it is not going to get better for the tenants at the Plaza. I think that you might be right about the landlord.

        And generally the restaurants at the Plaza haven't ever been particularly good (including Flavor) for their price point.

        Not exactly a restaurant, but PubCakes is closing down.

          NOOOOOO! I love that place! The cupcakes were delicious! Ugh...and yet that crappy actor Cheesecake Factory still gets work.
