Cousins Maine Lobster Will Keep Lobster Mania Alive in West Hollywood

Lobster rolls are seriously trending.

The West Hollywood stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard seems to be the place where restaurant concepts go to die. In this month alone we've seen The Horn and Gangnam Pocha bite the dust, and now comes word that Bite Mi Café hasn't fared any better.

The good news is denizens of West Hollywood won't have to wait long for a new restaurant to take its place. Toddrickallen reports that ABC's Shark Tank favorites Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac will be expanding their lobster truck business Cousins Maine Lobster into another full-fledged brick and mortar.

The cousins attempted their first brick and mortar within Pasadena drinking lounge Live Mixx, but quickly closed the place back in December 2013. Hopefully the new West Hollywood location will survive better, but it's a tough bet considering the history of the neighborhood.

Cousins Maine Lobster will carry on the current lobster roll trend in LA that's been solidified by the recent opening of Silver Lake's Knuckle & Claw. Hopefully the concept sticks around so West Hollywood's restaurant row can finally find some stability.
