Pura Vida to close after 12 years
Poncey-Highland restaurant announces on Facebook it will close its doors Dec. 31, 2012.
Pura Vida is closing its Poncey-Highland location after 12 years in business.
Owners Leslie and chef Hector Santiago announced Tuesday in a Facebook post, Pura Vida will close its doors December 31.
“We want to thank all of our fans for 12 years of living the Pura Vida! We are sorry to tell you that we will be closing Pura Vida at the end of this year, with December 31 being our last day of service,” according to the post.
Super Pan, the cuban sandwich shop also owned by the Santiagos (located on the lower-level of the Pura Vida space), shuttered in May.
Even after two restaurant closures this year, the Santiagos aren’t calling it quits.
“We are looking for partners and/or investors for new concepts. We are actively exploring our options, and we promise to stay in touch and keep you apprised as our future plans unfold.”
