Kitchen Nightmares Restaurant Sebastian's Reputedly Closing

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

According to WhatWouldRamsayDo.com, this email was sent out to everyone on the mailing list of Sebastian's, a Burbank restaurant that was featured on the TV show Kitchen Nightmares:

As of January 20th Sebastian's will be closing the doors. We are moving back to Boston for family reasons. We are grateful and appreciative of all of you for not only your business support but the lifetime friendships we have made with a lot of you. For those of you who know Nichole and I this is not an easy thing for us to do because this was our everything, but without family you've got nothing and they need us right now. We are keeping the same email address so if you need to contact us please do so at eatrelaxenjoy@aol.com . C'mon in and see us before it's too late! We'd love the privilege to say goodbye in person.

Truly from our hearts to all of yours, thank you.
