Preux & Proper, a New Orleans and Southern-inspired restaurant, unfortunately, shut its doors earlier this year — but a new tenant listed as “Polanco Restaurant” already has its eyes on the DTLA space, according to a liquor license application obtained by What Now Los Angeles (WNLA). Chef Daniel Godinez is listed as the applicant and Polanco is the name of a Mexico City neighborhood in the Miguel Hidalgo borough.

Preux & Proper’s closure was previously covered by WNLA back in September, citing COVID as the culprit. The owner, Josh Kopel, did promise another “project” at some point in the future but did not provide any additional info or give any indication that the new project would replace Preux & Proper.

As for the Polanco Restaurant at 840 S Spring St., even less is known, other than Godinez’s involvement. The chef has been attached to restaurants like Maestro, El Mercado Modern Cuisine, Cevicheria Nais, and Anepalco. WNLA reached out to Godinez, who didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
