A new restaurant is in the works for a renovated brick building on the border of Echo Park and Angeleno Heights. It’s not clear what kind of restaurant will open but the owners have pulled building permits and have asked the city permission to serve beer and wine at a proposed restaurant located at Allison Avenue and Sunset Boulevard. The 1,250-square-foot storefront, now an empty space covered by a large piece of plywood, is located in the same building as Novak, a new salon that opened in May.
The online permits do not reveal the ownership of the new restaurant. Do they have another vegan–gastropub-wine bar in mind? Or is it time to bring Indian or Middle Eastern cuisine to Echo Park?
