Cho Yu and his wife Daisy Yu recently announced the closing of Cho’s, their 35-year-old dim sum restaurant located on California Avenue in Palo Alto. The announcement came as a surprise to Cho’s loyal customers when a handwritten note was posted on the wall of the restaurant beneath the framed Chinese character for “good fortune”:
“We lost the lease. The last day is 3/15/2014. Thanks Everyone for the Long Time Support! — Cho”
The Yus told Verde were given a 60-day eviction notice by their landlord. According to the San Jose Mercury News, a petition has been started to save the family-owned restaurant. If evicted, Cho’s delicious dim sum and the Yus presence at the restaurant will be dearly missed by Palo Alto residents.
