Studio City's beloved Henry's Tacos is getting a new lease on life, specifically a new lease in a new locale, just a stone's throw from the original.

Studio Sub in Tujunga Village is closing up shop on Sunday, and Henry's new owner is moving in with an eye on a mid-March opening, reports Studio City Patch.

Stephanie Levy, who owns Studio Sub, says she's closing down because of rising food prices, which is a common plight among independent eateries around town lately. Case in point, L.A.'s many delis, according to a new piece in the L.A. Times.

Omar Vega bought Henry's Tacos from Janis Hood when Hood lost the lease on the iconic stand at the corner of Moorpark and Tujunga Avenue. Vega was the head chef at the stand for 21 years. He'll be opening up the new Henry's Tacos a mere half block away.
