ECHO PARK — A crew of workers is busy inside the former home of Barragan’s, transforming the interior of the former Mexican restaurant into a sprawling English-themed tavern and restaurant known as The Lost Knight. The new Sunset Boulevard restaurant and bar is scheduled to open in January, said Peter Moore, whose family is going to run operations.
Moore said the interior of The Lost Knight, which has been undergoing renovations for several months, is not ready to be photographed yet. But the sprawling space is being divided up into separate sections, including what is expected to be lively tavern with at least a dozen beers on draft, a more sedate, library-like lounge and a dining room with a “carriage-like feel.” The idea is to make The Lost Knight a “destination,” said Moore, who said the restaurant will serve up sausages, roast beef and other items.
Barragan’s orange-and-white exterior will soon be repainted as workers complete the all new dining rooms, bar, kitchen and bathrooms. The only reminders of Barragan’s, which closed nearly a year ago after the family sold the building, are some of the wood dining booths, which have been painted a shiny black.
