Nibs restaurant on San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito – a popular local diner famous for generous hamburgers, friendly proprietors and loyal customers – is closed temporarily because of damage from a fire, according to the owners.

A handwritten sign on the boarded-up entrance from owners Alex and Hannah Yook says:

Dear Nib's Customers,

We are sorry.

Nib's will be closed for about a month.

The grill caught on fire. Please Wait for that moment of time to come back. 

We are sorry again.

Thank you,

– Alex & Hannah – 

The fire occurred Feb. 24, according to the El Cerrito fire department.

A large sheet of plywood covers the door at the rear of the building that serves as the entrance. Shattered glass littered the ground on a Patch visit Monday afternoon.

The sign from the owners is covered with hand-written notes from customers saying "God bless you" and wishing the couple good luck and pledging to be back.
