I recently received a tip that The Pan restaurant at 18 E. Cota Street has been sold. The restaurant is only open on Friday & Saturday nights so I called them repeatedly during business hours last weekend and nobody answered the phone. My calls went to voice mail every time and the voice mail still says it’s business as usual at The Pan. Rumor has it that the new owner (if there even is a new owner) operates Mexican restaurants in Los Angeles. It might also be the case that nothing at all has changed at The Pan.
