Laguna Javier's Closed?

I have heard a rumor that the Javier's in Laguna Beach has been closed down. Can anybody confirm or deny this information? I know they were set to close later this year in the summer or fall when they moved to Crystal Cove but apparently they have been shut down even earlier than expected.

IMPORTANT UPDATE (February 11, 2008):

I can tell you absolutely, positively that Javier's in Laguna has not closed yet. I walked by yesterday and they were definitely open. Last time I was there(two weeks ago), I was told that they are staying through summer, and plan to move to Crystal Cove sometime after. Hopefully they will be able to extend their time here even longer, as I will really miss them around the corner.

I wonder how the rumor got started. Good to hear it's still open.

they are closing, I just called they said they will be there until probably middle of january 2008.
I heard it was some shady thing where the owners of the building were going to open their own mexican restaurant there.

Hmm, so there will be a little bit of an overlap between the time the new one opens and the time the old one closes.

Unfortunately the Javiers in Laguna closed. I went there last thursday, 1-3-08 for dinner and it is another Mexican restaurant with a very differnt menu. Determined for my Javier's mexican food fix I went by the new location in Crystal Cove only to discover it is still weeks away from opening.

They closed after the first of the year, 2008. I was by there last Thursday and it is now another Mexican restaurant with a very different menu. The Crystal Cove Javier's is not open yet, but looks close to being finished.

My wife and I ate at the new restaurant last Saturday and it was good. Our favorite dish was the Veracruz Shrimp and it was the best shrimp dish I have had in some time.
