ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – The popular Roseville restaurant and wine bar Crush 29 has been evicted, according to statement from management.
An eviction notice from the Placer County Sheriff’s Department greeted customers who stopped by the restaurant on Wednesday.

A letter taped on the business’ front doors, which is dated August 25, says the shopping center where the restaurant is located was foreclosed on, and the restaurant’s lease was canceled.

“Crush 29 was an independent tenant of the shopping center and was not the borrower or owner at the time of foreclosure,” the statement reads. “We would like to thank all our valued customers, whose loyalty, trust and faith in us allowed us to become the number one restaurant of your choice in Roseville.”
The owner of the restaurant, Abe Alizadeh, is known for founding a restaurant empire in the region, but he has also had a bad financial track record. More than 70 Jack In The Box restaurants he owned closed after he declared bankruptcy over millions of dollars he owed in unpaid taxes.
“He has multiple restaurants that have closed, and he started a restaurant over there,” said Roseville resident Vince Munoz. “He started building across the street and he never followed through with that, so like I said I’m not surprised”
Windows of the restaurant have been covered up.
Those with gift cards or upcoming events planned at the restaurant are encouraged to go to the website for instructions, the letter says; however, a cursory search of the website didn’t turn up any instructions.
