Wow! Another DTLA restaurant bites the dust. It appears Petty Cash has shut down its Arts District location. The restaurant’s phone rings unanswered and the Arts District location information has already been removed from the restaurant’s website. The Beverly Boulevard location remains open. DTLAexplorer.com reviewed the Arts District restaurant back in February and gave it mixed reviews, so we are not too disappointed it closed down as there are much better Mexican restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles.
Here is a statement from Petty Cash provided to the website la.eater.com:
After a great run at our second location, we have decided to close Petty Cash Arts District. Chef/Owner Walter Manzke and longtime Chef de Cuisine Fabian Gallardo are excited to continue serving up longtime favorites at our Mid-City location on Beverly Blvd. In addition, the original Beverly location will be rolling out lunch for the first time ever, kicking off officially next week with hours from: Wed – Fri 12pm – 3pm and Sat/Sun 12pm – 10pm.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our new location and we’ll see you for tacos and tequila at Petty Cash Mid – City!
Petty Cash isn’t the first restaurant to abandon that location at 712 So. Sante Fe Street. A restaurant we loved called Fifty-Seven, named after the former Heinz 57 warehouse, failed in the same spot. We look forward to checking out who takes over the jinxed location next.
