Roughly six months after rebranding, Smyrna Mexican restaurant Jose's Not Here has closed. The restaurant announced on December 24 that it would shut down at midnight on December 31.
Jose's Not Here originally opened as Lime Taqueria & Tequila Bar at 4600 West Village Place in 2007. The restaurant later changed its name to Village Taqueria, and then changed again to its current concept last June, updating the decor and menu. At the time, general manager Kristine Kayser said the update was in an effort to "appeal to a hipper audience."
There's no word yet on what might take over the Jose's space.
