The question has been asked a lot since the longtime Echo Park Mexican restaurant closed in December after the Barragan family sold the Sunset Boulevard location (the Barragan’s in Burbank and Glendale remain open). A new beer and wine license was issued this month for The Lost Knight, which will operate out of the old Barragan’s. But who’s that new owner and what do they have planned?
There might be some clues at the website of Potential, a company that has owned and managed restaurants, bars and nightclubs in Hollywood and other places. The Potential website reveals a restaurant and bar concept for The Lost Knight, which appears to be a modern take on a classic British pub. Is this what Potential has in mind for Echo Park? Alan Moore, the founder of Potential and whose name appears on the beer and wine license for The Lost Knight, told The Eastsider he was not yet ready to talk about what his company has planned for Barragan’s but will be providing more details soon.
