Reader Schoepp says the lease for Via Vai restaurant at 1483 East Valley Road in Montecito is not being renewed. This is a surprise since the place has always been hopping every time I have dined there and what landlord would kick out a popular tenant? The restaurant opened 30 years ago and should remain in business through at least the spring.

    This is a travesty. Will they reopen elsewhere?

    If that is the whole story, that really stinks. A legendary place that will be missed!

    Oh crud. Another family favorite closes. Always busy.

    I’ll guess some LA “concept” offered more pesos.
