ECHO PARK — Someone wants to turn the former Warehouse Shoe Sale store on Sunset Boulevard into a nearly 4,000-square foot restaurant with a penny arcade, according to documents filed with the Planning Department.
It’s not clear who is behind the new venture but the owners of the restaurant-arcade are seeking city permission to convert the now vacant retail space at Sunset Boulevard and Douglas Street into a restaurant that would serve beer and wine, according to city records. The proposed restaurant is in the same minimall where Domino’s Pizza opened a new “pizza-theater” style store last year.
The application to open the restaurant-arcade surfaced a few months after a similar venture tried to get city permission to open in a former Sunset Boulevard laundry. That effort fell through but it’s not clear if the same owners are involved with this new restaurant.
* Update: Gabe Fowlkes, who had tried to open a restaurant-arcade in the laundry, is now involved in this new location at Sunset and Douglas. “We are excited about the space and the opportunity to continue in Echo Park,” he said via email. ” We look forward to going back to [the neighborhood council and groups] and our neighbors to share our updated plans based on the new location and previous dialogue. ”
