Allumette owners Charles Kelly and Bill DiDonna have released a date for the closing of their restaurant. June 28th will be the last time you can grab a meal or two from this Silver Lake establishment. After a year and a half of serving tasty dishes, it is time to say good bye. The combination of their Sunset location mixed in with pricey plates left a bitter taste with Silver Lake residents. It seems that cheap tacos are the king of the crop around here. Death by tacos you could say. Here is what management had to say.
“A restaurant like Allumette requires tremendous and consistent effort in sourcing and producing the food and drink that we have been celebrated for. We took a calculated, but substantial risk opening a restaurant like this in Echo Park and ultimately we just couldn’t find the customer support necessary to sustain our business without compromising the guest experience. So, it is with bittersweet emotions that we announce that Allumette will have its final day of service on Saturday, June 28th. It has been a great ride, filled with exhilarating food, spectacular cocktails and definitive dining moments. We are all thrilled to have been part of something so special and know that all of our hard work and commitment to Allumette was well worth it. We remain friends and colleagues and are each excited for our next chapter in the ever-evolving Los Angeles dining community.”
No word if the establishment is going to relocate.
