SIV Tries The Mercantile, More Larchmont Blvd Drama

New, 5 comments

HOLLYWOOD— SIV hits up George Abou-Daoud 's newly opened the Mercantile and here's what she has to say: "the Mercantile evokes an old-timey general store...That is, until you take in the tall, weirdly uncomfortable bentwood stools and start wondering whether the wooden barrels riding at ceiling height above the bar are securely fastened." Oh yes, and she drops the p-word on the French onion soup: "just about perfect." [LAT]

LARCHMONT— The I Love Larchmont Blvd commotion continues. Over the weekend an email was sent out to nearby Windsor Square residents soliciting support for a petition that supports the city's enforcement of zoning laws on Larchmont. Councilmember Tom Labonge has proposed revising the "Q" conditions to “regulate any over-concentration of restaurant uses, including those defined by existing regulations as permitted as 'take-out' establishments.” [EaterWire]
