Leonidas Slain in Santa Monica and Pasadena; Barefoot Busts in Mid-City

Two additional closings have struck the city this week, with Eater reporting that Barefoot Cafe, which attempted both Italian-inspired seafood and sushi, has shut its doors on Third Street and disconnected its phones. Though smelling much sweeter, Leondias Chocolate Cafe has also closed its Santa Monica location to make way for a Jamba Juice, and a call to the Pasadena store finds that one recently shut down as well, though the new owners, Belgian Chocolate Cafe, are in a similar racket. Sort of a shame, even though all we did was window-shop and window-sniff around here. [Todd Rick Allen via Eater]
