Du-Par's R.I.P.?

David Kahn | Sep 12, 200406:41 PM

Was out to dinner with my uncle yesterday who told me that the Du-Par's chain had been sold, and that they would be shutting down in the not too distant future. Just called the Farmer's Market branch, and the woman who answered the phone confirmed that they had been sold and that there were some sort of plans to shut down for some period of time. She thought they would re-open, but didn't know about name, menu, and/or other changes. Who knows, I guess, but it sounds to me like another historic LA eatery may be in the process of biting the dust. What is it about this city that makes it unable to hold on to its old beloved restaurants? (E.g., Chasen's, The Brown Derby, Ah Fong's, Scandia, Perino's, etc.)
