HIGHLAND PARK — The owners of Schodorf’s Luncheonette have announced the permanent closure of the sandwich shop, which opened nearly five years ago as the York Boulevard restaurant and bar scene was taking off.
Matt and Anya Schodorf, who also own Cafe de Leche Café down the block, gave no reason why they were closing Schodorf’s, located on York near Avenue 51. The business shared the same name as the diner Matt Schodorf’s grandfather operated in Willard, Ohio
“It has been an honor to serve you over the past five years,” said a note the couple posted on Instagram. “Thank you for helping make a dream come true.”
No word yet on what will replace Schodorf’s. But given all the new restaurants, bars and shops that have opened on this section of York, it probably won’t be empty for long.
Update: Matt Schodorf said in an email that the closure was prompted by an rent increase that “was going to be unaffordable for us in the long run.” He identified the new tenant as Silver Lake Ramen. “We are pleased that we were able to find some great folks to take over the space,” Schodorf said. “I believe it will be called Ramen on York.”
Meanwhile, Schodorf and his wife are preparing to open a second Café de Leche on N. Lake Avenue in Altadena.
