Jorge’s Cantina closed for good and facing eviction

Lack of parking was one of the factors in the demise.

The older I get the more I realize that you’ve got to be border line insane to open a bar or restaurant. Constant work and the chances of making a living seem very slim. My theory is backed up by the latest news from Richmond on Jorge’s Cantina.

Jorge’s Cantina, a restaurant at 2526 Floyd Ave. owned by Jake Crocker, Hayden Fisher, and Jose Garcia, is closed for good, Crocker said Wednesday.

The property’s landlord has gone to court to try to collect damages of about $30,000 for unpaid rent.

Bandazian & Hughes, the real estate firm that manages the Jorge’s Cantina property, changed the locks last week. The property is up for sale or lease.

Jorge’s opened in spring 2013, but closed this July because business was slow, the building needed repairs, and the restaurant had to find more parking spaces to comply with city ordinances for restaurants, Crocker said.
