Henry's Tacos to reopen in Tujunga Village

studio-sub-patch.jpgThe late, apparently missed Studio City taco and burger stand that closed in January will reopen next month a half-block away on Tujunga Avenue. What that means more immediately is that Studio Sub, a sandwich shop that opened in 2010, will be closing on Sunday and vacating. It all sounds cordial, according to Studio City Patch.

After three years of serving up quality sub sandwiches and the self-designated “best chili in L.A.,” Stephanie Levy is closing up Studio Sub in Tujunga Village—and Henry’s Tacos is moving in.

Levy said food prices have skyrocketed, and she couldn’t compete with the fastfood Subway and Quiznos chains that have cropped up around the area. The longtime Studio City resident is going back to booking adventure travel trips.

“I am glad we are helping to save Henry’s and now I’m going to help save the rhinos and the elephants,” Levy said.

The decision came quickly, and papers need to be signed and finalized, but Studio Sub is closing as of Sunday, and new Henry’s Tacos owner Omar Vega plans to open in the new location in mid-March.

Vega was head chef at Henry’s for 21 years when it was located half a block away at Moorpark and Tujunga Avenue, and after owner Janis Hood lost the lease there, she sold the business to Vega.

Henry's Tacos coverage sort of dominated here for awhile in December and January.
