“To our beloved supporters–our guests, friends, family, community, and city. It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of Broken Spanish for the indefinite future,” Garcia wrote. “With very much in our hearts but so few words, we want to thank you for an incredible five years, for sharing our culture and vision, and for making Broken Spanish what it is today.”

Garcia is still moving forward with plans to operate the chef’s new takeaway spot MILA (“Made In Los Angeles”). The taqueria will start delivery on Wednesday, August 5.

“The support and love over the past several months will never be forgotten, and the past five years will be forever celebrated. We close our doors today with an abundance of gratitude in our hearts and hopes that this is just goodbye for now.”

Broken Spanish is the latest big-name restaurant to permanently shutter in the wake of COVID-19 joining Trois Mec, Baco Mercat, and Dong Il Jang among others.
