One restaurant opens and another closes here in Trinidad Ca.
I went to The Trinidad Bay Eatery this morning and noticed that there were no cars in the parking lot. That's strange I thought, they must be closed. A sign on the door said Closed and the place was cleared out. There were only empty shelves in The Gallery gift shop that was in the same building. I was sad. What could have possibly happened to make such a busy restaurant just close without warning? They had been going non stop since 1975.
I called the phone number for the Eatery and got the former owner, Carolyn Phillips. She and her husband Sam still own the building but had sold the business 10 years earlier. She said that she and Sam had sold their house in the bay area and moved back up to live above the now empty restaurant. Carolyn also said that the people that were running the place left when their 10 year lease was up. They had two 5 year options but decided not to exercise them. There is more to the story but most important is that the business could reopen if someone wanted to sign a new lease. Here is your chance to run a successful business in beautiful Trinidad half a block from the Lighthouse and the Pacific Ocean. If you are truly interested in this call Sam or Carolyn Phillips at 707-677-3777.
Across town where Kashie's Catch Cafe used to be is a newly refurbished Lighthouse Grill almost ready to open. An addition to the building will allow for inside dining. They will offer burgers, fish, beef brisket, savory waffle cones and homemade ice cream. The new owners already run Humboldt Homemade Meals and they try to use as many local ingredients as possible with Humboldt Grass Fed Beef and buying from the local farmers markets and other resources. I have tasted some of their catering and can say for sure that these people know what they are doing. They deliver from Trinidad to Eureka and if you are interested in their meals check the link above. I am looking forward to their grand opening soon, they are hoping that will be in about two weeks from now, give or take a bit.
