Sabor Latin Steet Grill was the follow-on operation to breakfast & lunch spot Le Peep which closed in April of 2019. Sabor opened in July of 2019, as reported in ColaDaily, giving it a run of something less than a year.

Although the pictured Family Box seems to hew towards standard Mexican items, my understanding is that Sabor had a fuller menu with items from other Southern countries, and I had it on my mental list to eventually visit. Unfortunately, the restaurant was caught up in the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and was not able to last from its 21 March 2020 temporary closing into the coming (hopefully!) full reopening period. The Free Times has that story:

The Vista location of Sabor Latin Street Grill, a fast-casual restaurant chain out of Charlotte, closed late last month amid the coronavirus’ impact on area restaurants.

Mark Gardner, former general manager with the restaurant, confirmed to Free Times that the restaurant closed on March 21, and that the closure is now permanent. The restaurant had employed 22 workers.

“COVID-19 … just hurt sales too much,” Gardner explains.

Numerous restaurants throughout the area have grappled with takeout-only offerings since Gov. Henry McMaster closed South Carolina restaurant dining rooms on March 17 in an effort to enforce social distancing. Gardner says the Columbia Sabor gave takeout a shot, but it wasn’t successful enough to justify continuing.

“We tried that the first week, but the sales just weren’t there,” he says.

Le Peep, 701 Gervais Street Suite 110: 3 April 2019   2 comments

Posted at 7:50 pm in closing

Well, this is, I don't know, not ironic exactly, but a little odd: I was on the 700 block of Gervais Street today, getting pictures of Newk's & Tin Lizzy, and when I got home, I saw on The State that Le Peep had closed Wednesday.

While I was down there, I looked at the place several times, but somehow did not notice any sign on the door, and didn't take any pictures. The picture above, from the grand opening, will have to do until I get down there again.

I like breakfast food, but rarely get to have it as I do *not* like early mornings. One day I may get to try Le Peep at Sandhill, Famous Toastery or Eggs Up, but it will probably be a while.

This Subway was in The Vista Lofts on Gervais Street just above the train cut, a building which lost another restaurant Mezza fairly recently.

I'm guessing that they closed shop at the end of July as that is a logical time as far as leases and bills go, but I don't know for sure. At any rate, all the signage is down and the interior is stripped. The only clue that it was a Subway is the drink cup on the floor.

UPDATE 17 July 2014 -- It's now Black Bean Co.:
