La Frite Cafe in Sherman Oaks, California which appeared on season 4 of Kitchen Nightmares has closed. The restaurant was actually purchased by a new owner in 2016 who continued with the La Frite Cafe concept. Then around October of 2017 the owner converted La Frite Cafe into an Italian restaurant called Modo Mio which has other locations as well.
In an article on Eater, the new owner said, “The former [La Frite] owner had too many troubles since the TV show. I bought it from him last year, and saw that the business was too difficult to manage. So I decided to change it to Italian cuisine”
La Frite Cafe has now been marked as closed on the Kitchen Nightmares Updates Page and it is the 8th of 12 restaurants to close from that season. A link to the full episode is here if you are interested in watching the episode.
