Representatives of the Larchmont Bungalow restaurant are on the agenda at the next Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council (GWNC) Land Use Committee this Tuesday evening, July 22nd. The Bungalow is asking for a zone change from the “Q” Condition ordinance on Larchmont that restricts the number of restaurants, according to the application they filed with the city Planning Department. If granted they would finally have legal status as a restaurant instead of a retail/take out.
The Bungalow also wants a permit to sell alcoholic beverages and requests a variance from the parking requirements to allow their 7 on-site parking spaces to satisfy the city requirement instead of the 25 required for a restaurant of their size, approximately 2,400 square feet with 44 indoor seats and 48 outdoor seats.
The restaurant has spent several years in criminal and civil court fighting the City after it opened in 2009 without proper permits. Read more about the Bungalow’s court cases in our earlier story.
The GWNC committee meets Tuesday, July 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wilshire United Methodist Church. Members of the public are invited to attend. Other agenda items that evening may include a five unit subdivision at 856 S Wilton, and the four unit subdivision planned for 421 N. Van Ness Ave. though neither of these are as yet confirmed for certain.
