Rudy Martinez's "Marty's" becomes "Cafe Lobos" on York Blvd.

 Former CD 14 City Council Candidate Rudy Martinez's Marty's Lounge & Bar on York Blvd. in Highland Park, has been reincarnated as Cafe Lobos according to the Eastsider LA. CD 14 politicos will remember Marty's as the location of Councilman Jose Huizar's 2007 Swearing-In Ceremony. This in a time when Councilman Huizar and Martinez were close friends and associates. 
But after a falling out and bitter campaign between the former friends, Martinez has moved on and now has partner with Highland Park resident and renown Chef Jasmine Wolf as the Eastsider reports.
Chef Jasmine Wolf, a Highland Park resident who has worked at Wurstkuche in downtown L.A.,  has overseen the transformation of the York Boulevard bar opened by Rudy Martinez, who also owns Mia Sushi in Eagle Rock and tried unsuccessfully to unseat  Jose Huizar as District 14 councilman.  “I live in Highland Park and had been looking for a place to open my restaurant,” said Wolf, who serves as head chef and co-owner. “I approached Rudy with my ideas and he loved them. We really want our neighborhood to have more options and be a destination for Angelenos.” ** Plus their collaboration created 27 new jobs according to Martinez.
The Grand Opening is schedule for tomorrow from 6 P.M.-2 A.M..
