Monsoon Cafe Ends Its Long Run In Santa Monica: New Restaurant Expected Soon…

Well I sure didn’t see this one coming, but it looks like one of Santa Monica’s favorite pan-Asian restaurants (and occasional salsa dance lounge) Monsoon Cafe, has ended its long run of 18 years at 1212 3rd St Promenade.  According to the goodbye letter posted on the front door, those giant Nepalese Buddha eyes that have gazed down on this quieter section of the Promenade between Wilshire and Arizona will soon be painted over to make way for a new, unnamed “restaurant operation”.  Whether this means the new eatery will be by the same owners or an entirely different company, I’m not certain.  No word on what the replacement will be, but it appears they’re aiming at being up and running by April of this year.
