Latour is being evicted for what the landlord says is nonpayment of rent.
Latour president Joumana Toubia, Antoine’s sister, says she stopped paying because of maintenance issues.
Toubia is throwing a party for customers from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
“We’re inviting our patrons to come and celebrate our legacy,” she says.
Then, she’ll consider what’s next.
“Of course, I hope to reopen in one fashion or another,” Toubia says. “I don’t want to rush into anything.”
She says there are all kinds of opportunities for new ventures now.
“It would be wrong not to consider all of them.”
Still, Toubia is sad to leave what’s been her company’s home for so long.
