Cahuenga Corridor restaurant Citizen Smith has closed for good, according to Eater LA. "The restaurant was abruptly shuttered by the court receiver put in place to settle the divorce of current operators Brett and Karina Sulzer. Landlords have already listed the property on LoopNet." The beautiful "junk store-chic" space made (if not much else, alas) great mac and cheese, as we learned during dineLA last year. Watch that space--since the city plans to transform the alley out back into its first Pedestrian Alley.
