After 10 years in business, jZ Cool Eatery and Wine Bar on Santa Cruz Avenue in downtown Menlo Park has closed.
Owner Jesse Cool announced the closure, saying that she plans to open a lunch cafe in the city's business park area, east of U.S. 101, in June. Meanwhile, Cool's catering company is moving into a larger venue in the business park, she said.
In addition to her catering business, Cool also operates the Flea St. Cafe on Alameda de las Pulgas in Menlo Park, and a cafe in Stanford's Cantor Arts Center. She advocates the use of organic ingredients from local farms.
"I want to personally thank the community for dining at one of our tables throughout the years," Cool said.
