In a striking blow to the many gangs of vegans who roam the streets of LA looking to thrash until the early morning, Moby swears up and down that his new Silver Lake meatless restaurant Little Pine won't be catering to loud, unruly hordes. According to The Eastsider, in a scheduled presentation to the Silver Lake community last week the DJ/recording artist/producer laid out his plans for a more casual all-day eatery that, yes, will include beer and wine, but won't become a noisy patio hangout spot.
The assurances are smart for Little Pine, which hopes to become the essence of a neighborhood restaurant for the underserved stretch of Silver Lake. The last thing the Rowena Ave restaurant is looking for is trouble from the locals, who might object to loud music outside or the hypothetical 1 a.m. scatter of inebriated types.
So far, the beer and wine licensing for the restaurant, which is hoping for a summer arrival, has not been approved. After getting some feedback at the community meeting, Moby plans to reconsider things like parking, patio access, and hours of operation, and will return at a later date with a firmer idea of what’s to come. Hopefully at that time he’ll earn the blessings of the neighborhood to move forward with Little Pine, while leaving those vegan ne’er-do-wells behind.
