Considering the amount of time they spent on renovating the space, this is certainly sad news… D1 Café has unceremoniously vacated its location at 10959 Kinross Ave. in Westwood. I took almost a year and a half from the time I first noticed the extensive construction until their opening. The space is now gutted. I’ll keep watching to see what, if anything, moves into the tricky spot.
Update: A reader let me know that a fire took out D1 in August. Perhaps they’ll reopen…
There was a fire in August, hasn’t reopened since.
I didn’t catch that, thanks! Really sad considering how much they put into the space.
Having seen how empty it was, and a waitress complaining to me that there were no customers and that they didn’t have half the food on the menu … a fire seems like a mercy kill.
