Le Kon, Chef Katsuji Tanabe's Mexican Fusion in the Former Park Lane Tavern Space, West Clarendon - Closed

Recommended Posts

A restaurant that has not yet opened, yet has a single 5-star rating is opening next to the controversial Asiatique. (cajun smelling seafood sushi anyone?)

I am oddly transfixed at this particular location for some reason. Maybe its the really bad driving that happens near the store fronts.

Shall we place bets on length of tenure, or does somebody have to dine there first?

I have been informed that Asiatique has no ABC license yet, at least as of today, from a reliable source who was actually there.  Not a good sign.

To clarify, you mean Asiatique?  Le Kon has alcohol.

and to clarify my critique of Asiatique, I meant to say "cajun smelling sushi anyone?" I am thus, again reminded, that my remarkable wit does not translate well when I am forced to type.

Peeps: The con closed before we could test it.

Can I make fun of la finca or am I being too trite recently?

Le Kon's sign was blocked by the overhang. The professional exterior was marred by stupid sticker letters announcing "tacos" or some such nonsense. And ARL messed with the location just as they opened. 

Anybody have anything positive to share?

This article doesn't make it clear if there's a new ownership, or if it's just a redo.

It opened in August of 2018. A redo in less than a year? Why?

It might have additional/new owners.  Overall it wasn't doing great.  Hence the change.  (I know a little about it from grad(s) that were hired though never made it over there)

Was Katsuji really involved in the first place?  I can't understand why a Top Chef's restaurant had so little media attention.

Horrible location. Just impossible to get to and bad street view. Sports bar might make it......doubt it.

....and the gosspy dirt from ex employees:

It lost money every month.   The investor shut it down and will redo it into something else.    On the location "thing"...I agree with Josh
