Bowery Ballroom Operators Eye Westlake; Killer Shrimp Crew to Hermosa

WESTLAKE— Interesting. Bowery Left LLC, those behind NYC's famous live music venue Bowery Ballroom, has submitted plans to resurrect Westlake's Playhouse Theater, which opened about 100 years ago but shuttered in the 1950s and most recently housed a violin shop. Per LandUseLA, Bowery Left wants a CUP to "rehabilitate the 9,453 square foot theater and restaurant so it can accommodate a total of 440 seats or 708 patrons, allow alcohol sales from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily, and allow live entertainment and incidental patron dancing." This would be Bowery Left's first project off the east coast. [LandUseLA via Curbed]

HERMOSA BEACH— Killer Shrimp presently operates seafood-intensive dining experiences in Marina del Rey and Santa Barbara, but management is about to open a third restaurant later this month in Hermosa Beach. The Killer Shrimp team will launch a new concept to replace Hermosa's landmark The Mermaid, an old school dive on Pier Avenue. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN— So, what's the word on new Downtown Edo-style sushi restaurant, Q? kevinEats files the first in-depth review, stating that, "It is thus a true passion project of sorts, driven by the sole desire to create something unique in the LA sushi scene, to execute a vision of old-school, uncompromising sushi that's rarely encountered outside of Japan." Further, he adds, "...one of the most exciting, one-of-a-kind sushi experiences that I've ever had. Even though the place just opened, I have no doubt that Q belongs in the top echelon of sushi spots in Los Angeles..." [kE]
