  1. BY, this eatery industry is not one I would ever want to own/manage. One year it’s “Grand Opening”, next year it’s showing the “For Lease” sign. It’s a tough, hard business.

    Thanks for all the updates. How do you keep up with all this action? Hopefully soon there will be more openings than closings. South Lake has been hit hard.

  3. @brando – Thanks for your feedback. I put in a lot of effort to update this blog and I do it because I love Pasadena. :) I too hope that South Lake Avenue continues to have more businesses open on the street.

  5. @Cafe Observer – Yeah there is a high turn over for restaurants in general in larger cities due to high competition. If you go to the Chinese areas like Monterey Park, San Gabriel, etc. there are Chinese restaurants being “reinvented” all the time (closing and reopening as something else).

  7. It’s disappointing that a chain will be moving into the Manny’s space, but not surprising. Good to see that Mezban is doing well, though. I have had some of the most fun dinners of my life in that restaurant.
