Last month, we learned that TiGeorges’ Chicken owner Georges Laguerre would be closing his Haitian hub in Echo Park before February to go back to his homeland and focus on a family coffee business. Now, it appears Laguerre will be staying in L.A. KCET reports that th owner will most likely relocate or upgrade the business and is currently searching for a beer and wine license, but is not leaving the city or TiGeorges behind, despite original reports that he was closing forever being on target. In fact, when the news hit, it apparently brought Laguerre help from municipal agencies, allowing him to envision a future for his temple of Haitian chicken and community. With so many favorite restaurants closing recently, we were probably due for a good turn like this. It’s especially encouraging to see the city work to hold onto a cultural asset like this one. Hats off to LaGuerre! [KCET]
