Mark Lacter at LA Business Observed today picks up on a piece at blogdowntown about a restaurant closing with that gem of a headline. The problem is, a planned Tony's Steakhouse for downtown Los Angeles had its lease terminated after two years and never seeing the day of light. Plans for the restaurant and others from the same owners were announced "just before and during the height of the recession."
