JR’s Pasta by Little Coyote Finally Opening


Looks like it didn’t make it…

Tried it once. Though we really liked the guys working there, was underwhelmed. Also, the ordering felt impossible, while LC seems easier to navigate.

The really big news from that article is that Strader is moving to Portugal (the new Spain :es:) which attran99 refers to in his LC posting.

From attran99’s link:
“* JR’s Pasta, the take-away pasta adventure from the owners of Little Coyote, has permanently shuttered while its owners, Jonathan Strader and Chef Jack Leahy, have taken a step back from the business. While Leahy clarified amid rumors that the pair is indeed directly involved, with Leahy at the Little Coyote space four to five days a week, both are no longer Long Beach residents. Strader and his family are moving to Portugal come December, with Leahy stating that Strader will return stateside to check in on the space every now and then. Leahy, meanwhile, has moved to DTLA and has told me he continues to “search for a space that is a full sit-down experience” with an Italian-American vibe. As for the pair’s step back, Leahy noted that it was best to do so rather than “stepping on the toes of current management.” Leahy said he will continue serving on “advisory and consulting terms.””


I want to move to portugal!
