On or about Oct. 29, Searsucker Del Mar will permanently close.

According to a WARN filing by Hakkasan Group, which owns Searsucker Del Mar, 43 employees will be laid off. Those positions include bartenders, line cooks, servers and busers.

Searsucker Del Mar, located in the Highlands Town Center in Carmel Valley, is one of three Searsucker locations -- there is one other in the Gaslamp Quarter and another in Las Vegas. Opened in 2013, Searsucker was originally called Burlap, an Asian-inspired concept that was opened in 2011 by San Diego chef Brian Malarkey.
