The Eastsider in November reported that chef Jasmine Wolf and Northeast restaurant and bar owner Rudy Martinez teamed up to transform Martinez’ former Highland Park bar – Marty’s – into a full fledged restaurant called Cafe Lobos. But, after undergoing a renovation inside and out, the York Boulevard restaurant has apparently shut down after only about two months in operation. The Cafe Lobos Yelp listing said the restaurant is closed and visitors to the cafe’s website are greeted with this message:
Cafe Lobos Highland Park is relocating. Please look for us at the Little Lobos Cafe in Beverly Hills and coming this March, the Lobos Truck!
What happened? Wolf, a Highland Park resident, said she will soon be issuing a statement about the fate of the cafe and a new location. The Eastsider has contacted Martinez, who also owns Mia Sushi in Eagle Rock, for comment.
