alkymists shutters after less than two months in downtown Palo Alto

Uploaded: Nov 10, 2014

alkymists, the unusual downtown Palo Alto restaurant that hoped to merge food and philanthropy in one space, has closed after less than two months.

alkymists opened in mid-September at 140 University Ave., the corner space previously home to Palo Alto Grill for 15 months and before that, Miyake.

alkymists served world-fusion food and planned to host free monthly brunches for low-income, battered or homeless women and their children, as well as teach them about nutrition and health.

Owner Luka Dvornik did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The 3,926-square-foot space (and its Type 47 liquor license) is officially on the market, listed for rent for $14,000 Triple Net plus $6,000 Triple Nets or for sale for $300,000. (In the comments section on the listing: "Seller invested over $1.0 million in the past two years. Please do not talk to employees.")
