There’s a new restaurant coming to the outer stretches of Culver City soon, called Harujuku Taproom. Toddrickallen was the first to spot the plywood, noting the flip at the former Grey Block Pizza.

Harujuku Taproom is actually an expansion of a Tokyo restaurant chain, known primarily as a casual izakaya back home. That means meat skewers grilled to order, and a craft beer lineup with over a dozen taps on offer. Unfortunately in perusing the restaurant’s Facebook page it doesn’t seem like renderings show that grilling happening right in front of customers (like at, say, RBTA in Highland Park) but the wide bar in the back and casual tables should help keep the mood up regardless. The beer itself will come from Baird Beer, a Japanese brewery.

No word on when Harujuku Taproom will actually arrive, though an update from a couple of days ago says construction is ongoing. Expect something before the end of the year.
