The owner of 55 Degree Wine in Atwater Village plans to open an 80-seat gastropub next to his wine shop in a Glendale Boulevard minimall. But, first, Andy Hasroun must get a special permit from the city to open up that restaurant in a former H&R Block office at 3111 Glendale Boulevard – the same shopping center that includes a Starbucks. The Planning Department had scheduled a hearing this morning to consider the permit. Atwater Village Now explains what Hasroun, who is also opening a wine bar in San Marino, has planned for his Atwater restaurant:
They will have a couple of dozen beers from around the world on tap, starting at $6 and going up to $15 for the high-end, rare/limited beers. Also on the beer list – Tony Yanow’s latest brews from his Atwater Village brewery, Golden Road Brewing.
From the kitchen, a variety of sausages including vegan sausages (Andy wants to make sure there are plenty of options for his patrons) and lots of toppings (think Tony’s Darts Away in Burbank). Andy wants to make sure the whole menu from beer to food is affordable for all his future patrons, and is really excited to get things started.
Hasroun said he will keep 55 Degree Wine as a separate business that might serve food from the restaurant next door.
