Jasmine Cafe/File photoJasmine Cafe, a mainstay of the Lake Anne Plaza dining scene, has abruptly closed.

A “no trespassing” sign has been placed on the chained door.

Chef and owner Eduardo Faubert says he was just made aware of the situation Tuesday afternoon. He said he did not close the restaurant and the lock was placed by the property owner.

Faubert says he does owe the owner some money, but hopefully the situation will be settled quickly.

Jasmine Cafe had been located at Lake Anne for more than 20 years. The restaurant has a local following for Faubert and his seasonal menu, as well as outdoor seating on the plaza.

Unlike most retail centers, which are owned by one company, Lake Anne Plaza storefronts are owned by individual owners.

    Sad news. I hope we’ll have Eduardo back soon.


    If you pay, you stay.

    We just walked by yesterday and saw a sign that said property of Jaleo Corp. is that the same as the restaurant downtown? Seems like a small space for jaleo.

      No, not the same. I think that is just the landlord’s company name.

    Wow! Very sad to say the least… Clearly, no merci.

    Whatever… Times have been tough and a little sympathy is in order. 20 years in business warrants some respect.

    I’m sure. You’re stupid pic really helps the cause. Enough said…

    He was very sick for a long time, Frankly speaking, if the public knew they would have not gone there for food. Not to mentioin, you have to pay your bills. It looks like he was planning a “retirement” for himself for some time. Let see what the I.R.S has to say about his managment techiques.

    Listen folks, He fanagled his bills into some womans name, and took off with the cash. Nice guy,,I think not. Perhaps years back but the last few years there was a huge personality issue going on. Hope he recieved proper assistance
