SANTA MONICA—The french-inspired eatery that has been open for just over a year is set to close on January 9, 2016, a representative informed L.A. Eatery.

Owned by Jeff Weinstein who partners with Executive Chef, Kris Tominaga, famous for his pop-up at Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing and Hart of the Hunter on Melrose, the restaurant features an eclectic mix of options, from Wood-grilled black cod to smoked pork collars.

Although the eatery has all the looks of a “chill but on trend restaurant,” according to food critic Jonathan Gold, he claims he is unimpressed, as he indicated to L.A. Eatery.

“It is a great idea for a restaurant too, until you start thinking about how the sweet and salty spices mask the flavors of the meat and fish like ketchup on a hot dog,” says Gold. “If you lose track for a moment, it can be hard to tell whether you’re eating wood-grilled pork collar or or marinated flap steak with escargot.”

Although the restaurant will be closing January 9, there is no confirmation on the reason why the establishment is shutting its doors. Canyon News contacted Cadet, but no one was available for comment.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Cadet owner, Jeff Weinstein plans to change to a “yet-to-be released concept.” According to L.A. Eatery, a new concept will begin in late spring. Interested parties are welcome to make reservations or visit the restaurant until it’s closing.

Cadet is open from Sunday-Thursday, 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday, 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. The restaurant is located in Santa Monica at 2518 Wilshire Boulevard. For reservations, please call (310) 828-3300 or visit
