Mona's Restaurant on South Broadway closes
After garnering a legion of fans at the original Mona's Restaurant on 15th Street, which features a pair of high-heeled legs dangling above the door, Linda and Garen Austin opened a second location on South Broadway, followed by a third Mona's Cafe on 17th Avenue and Sherman Street, which began feeding the masses last year.
But now, the trio is back down to two: Last week, the Austins shuttered the South Broadway Mona's Restaurant, which opened in 2007.
"That location was sold," an employee of the 15th Street Mona's says of the corner spot that recently made some modifications to its liquor license. "It won't reopen as a Mona's. It'll be another restaurant."
We've heard rumors that the buyer already owns a restaurant not too far from Mona's. Once we know for sure, we'll give you an update.
