The Former Jan's on Beverly Is Morphing Into Two Restaurants and Shop

Permitting shows an expansion of the current site.

It looks like a complete overhaul for Jan’s Family Restaurant, the fallen Beverly Boulevard mainstay for locals looking to eat on the cheap. Rumors have the location set to become a large Chipotle (though commenters note the presence of another Chipotle just around the corner near the Beverly Center), but that may not be quite right.

This permit and inspection report filed with the city for the address shows that there’s been plenty of behind-the-scenes action on site since late last year and through to last month. Most recently, a fully approved Plan Check at the end of February. So what’s coming to the site?

According to the paperwork, something not all that dissimilar to what’s proposed for the Norm’s site on La Cienega — a sort of mixed-use hybrid of shops and restaurants, possibly built out in full strip mall mode. The primary use is still for restaurants, though, with two restaurant permits available on the same plot of land. Hours look to be all day long, running daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Maybe Chipotle is coming around, but bringing yet another Starbucks with them?
