Now that brown paper has gone up covering Flor Morena's windows (as well as a boarded up window that was apparently vandalized last weekend), we thought it was time to recap all the rumors that have swirled around the place. The owners have apparently wrested control of teh property free of Flor Morena's proprietor, who certainly irked a lot of people by leaving the property vacant for so long. Feel free to weigh on on your favorite, or what you would like to see there.
Rumor #1) Larry Nicola from Nic's could be taking the space for his return to Silver Lake.
Rumor #2) Marshall Blair from Blair's is interested, even though he has a perfectly good restaurant across the street already.
Rumor #3) Peet's Coffee. They passed.
Rumor #4) Rudy Martinez of Mia Sushi tried to make a deal, but it didn't work out.
Rumor #5) The owners of Cafe Stella have already signed on the place. I haven't had time to check this one out, but it makes sense, as not much seems to be happening with the Artisan space they announced for Echo Park.
