We heard that Mia Sushi owner Rudy Martinez might be taking over the Flor Morena space on Rowena, but Martinez says he wasn't able to seal a deal. Of course, since there's no liquor license, it would probably be a rough place to launch a sushi bar. So still Flor Morena sits unused, waiting for Famima, Clementine's or M Cafe de Chaya to take over...in my dreams.
However, Martinez did let us know that he'll be opening a new steaks 'n cocktails place in Highland Park in a few months. Marty's, named for his son (Mia is his daughter) will be on York a block or two from the Wild Hare. Carter let us know that it's the former El Chubasco bar location at 5137 York Blvd.
