The owner has closed the restaurant at the end of its lease and moved on to other endeavors. The salsa sold in local retail stores is still available, through the work of another producer.

We had the tacos here. The steak and fish tacos were wonderful, but the waiter was busy and stressed out and showed it by being very curt and throwing things around in the little kitchen upstairs.
