Early morning Larchmont visitors were surprised to see paper on the windows and a note on the door at La Bottega Marino on Wednesday. The note was from owners Mario and Sal Marino – announcing the closure of their restaurant and thanking locals for their patronage over the 12 years they were open.
The space transfers hands on Friday, March 1st. Family run Pinches Tacos will be renovating the location and hope to open sometime in March.
You can still catch La Bottega Marino over in West LA – on Santa Monica near the 405. Just don’t do it this weekend – there’s a mini-carmageddon on tap…read about that here.
thought we knew they were closing already, or maybe that was a different eatery. Hmm, tacos…could be a great idea.
If you miss La Bottega, try and support Marino’s on Melrose too.
We’ll miss the manager, Will. He was so friendly and made La Bottega Marino such a great spot for the Larchmont/Hancock Park community.
