LARCHMONT BUNGALOW GETS EXTENSION
CRIMINAL CHARGES have been filed against Bungalow owner.
An L.A. Superior Court judge granted Larchmont Bungalow another month to make a plea, setting an arraignment for Tues., May 18 at the Hollywood Division, 5925 Hollywood Blvd.
Bungalow attorney Fred Gaines asked Judge Spurgeon Smith for an extension at last month’s hearing for the Bungalow at 107 N. Larchmont Blvd. Gaines has also filed a writ challenging the city’s revocation of the eatery’s certificate of occupancy.
City officials revoked the eatery’s occupancy certificate after it had tables and chairs but was licensed as take-out and retail only.
Criminal charges were filed against Bungalow owner Albert Mizrahi by Tina Hess, supervising assistant city attorney for the Safe Neighborhoods division. Mizrahi and Larchmont Village Partners One, LLC were charged with three counts of failing to comply with orders, providing false information and operating without a certificate of occupancy.
Bungalow owners appealed but were denied by the Building and Safety Board of Commissioners.
Larchmont Boulevard’s Q Condition allows for a total of eight restaurants between Beverly Blvd. and First St.
