Baja Calif - La Fonda Closed???

torta basilica | Feb 7, 200203:53 PM

I've just heard for the 2nd time that La Fonda, in La Mission in between Puerto Nuevo & Ensenada is closed permanently & that Joe & Sarah are gone.

Can anyone confirm this? I will be truly bummed after spending my formative years at the bar there & enjoying tons of lobster & steaks & lamb & breakfasts of machaca or coconut pancakes & all the rude things you'd do with the syrup & the bean soup & buckets of clams & homemade tortillas & the rustic, yet funky & romantic 'suites.' Watching dolphins play from the bouganvillea covered patio - I'm getting very depressed - somehow life was always much more pleasant knowing you could escape to La Fonda & see old friends whenever you wanted to. We loved all the waiters - especially the old ones who remembered me as a child a long long time ago sipping virgin drinks out of hurricane glasses on the patio on our way back from mant trips to Ensenada.

Does anyone have any news? Our email came back as an inoperative address.
