Last night all I wanted was a grilled cheese sandwich from Tom’s Urban at L.A. Live… and when we got there, the place was dark, empty and locked up. There’s a sign on the door that reads, “Due to Annual Maintenance we will be closed Sept. 20. 2015 and October 1, 2015. We apologize for any inconvenience and we look forward to seeing (you) again when we re-open October 2, 2015 at 11:00am.”
The restaurant’s Instagram account says they are “taking a quick break to freshen things up!” It’s Twitter account says they are closed for “a quick touch up.” I find this all a little weird because just a few days ago they were hyping “24 new menu items” all over social media. Why launch a new menu and then shut down for a few days?
I’m a huge fan of Tom’s Urban at L.A. Live. I love the place, so I hope this is just a temporary closure. I just worry when one of my favorite restaurants closes down for a few days, and then never reopens, like Soleto Trattoria & Pizza Bar.
