Bombay Garden, Mission Viejo gone - is this location cursed?

Midlife | Nov 22, 2005 02:11 AM

With all due respect to the new Italian restaurant just opened at the Kaleidoscope, in Mission Viejo, this is the third attempt in the same space in just a few years. The space was the home of Chin Chin (Asian), then Bombay Garden (which was rated rather highly here). Now it's Italian, Versachee (or some such spelling take on the designer name).

This has been a troubled center in general. Bristol Farms, Islands, an El Torito Mexican Grill, Marble Slab Creamery, and Edwards Cinemas seem to do OK. But everything else has been challenged, and the center is still not fully leased. Their site says that a "Riptide - Rockin' Sushi & Teppan Grill" is due up soon. Best of luck.

Any insights on Versachee?
