What is it with you NELA folks?

OK, the comments are getting out of hand on the Highland Park post below, so I'm going to have to close them. I swear this happened the last time I wrote about Highland Park. I didn't realize there was so much simmering art rage, bike rage and ethnic pride rage going on over there. Take it off line, guys! Let's talk about food on Eating L.A.

And also from the simmering resentment file, apparently Fat Dog has withdrawn its application to open in Eagle Rock -- just too much neighborhood opposition. And why bother anyway, when it would probably take them five years to open? Anyone with the latest on Larkin's, Michaelangelo's, etc., who wants to chime in, please go ahead. Anyone else, fight it out elsewhere.

Maybe the Fat Dog will open in Highland Park? From what I read, their restaurant was more bar than restaurant hence the opposition.

PS my friend just checked out Johnnie's and the owner(?) said they'd be open next weekend.

Uh, I only see 5 posts that don't sound like rage. Did you remove some posts?

Anyway, it's great that finally Highland Park is getting some respect.

On Larkin's ...

The opening has been postponed indefinitely due to city and permit issues.

Owners are quite distressed, and probably rightfully so.

what is UP with poor Larkin's? they really must have pissed off some city official or other to be getting such a world of pain...!

I only went for one dinner, but quite liked it and was looking forward to their opening.

I talked to the Michelangelo guys a couple of weeks ago and they are having trouble with the building/landlord and may have to pull out of the space if the owner will not make the building serviceable. It does not sound like an opening is imminemt.
