GC Tasting Cafe closes its doorsGC's Tasting Cafe and Specialty Market, located at 657 Oak Grove Ave. in Menlo Park, has closed. The store, which featured wine and cheese tastings, opened in September 2008.
In a farewell letter to customers, the owners said: "Like many other establishments and businesses over the last two years, GC was hurt by the economic meltdown that started only two weeks before we had our Grand Opening. Only with your wonderful support were we able to stay open for as long as we did."
Co-owners of the establishment were brothers-in-law Carl Rabe, Gerrard Culas and Bruce Tomlinson.
GC Cafe was located in combined spaces formerly occupied by Cindy's Flowers and Menlo Colonial Chapel.
