This photo of Octavio is from the “Chef’s Wall.”

It was with a “heavy heart” that I read about the closing of Palate Food + Wine, Octavio Becerra’s solo adventure in Glendale.  I’m sure it will only be a temporary bump in the road for this talented Chef who started his career in Food back at the Cadillac Cafe in 1984.

From the Palate website:

“It is with a heavy heart and profound sadness to announce the closure
of palate food + wine.

The spirit and essence of the dream that was palate
lives on in our hearts.

We are happy to have shared so many stellar times with all
that experienced palate and are grateful for those moments
spent together breaking bread and raising a glass.
We give thanks to everyone who contributed to the life of
palate food + wine and look forward to the future.”
