Studio City Restaurants Closed by DWP Flooding Begin to Reopen
A loss of business for just one day is tough for a restaurant, but three months is unimaginable. That's what happened to both Il Tramezzino and Le Pain Quotidian, among a handful of other shops on Ventura Boulevard, east of Coldwater Canyon when a trunkliine ruptured, severely flooding the neighborhood in September (see flooding photos here).
Yesterday, after finishing repairs totaling $250,000, Il Tramezzino reopened its doors. If you remember, LAist finds their sandwiches to be some of the best in the city.
Come this Saturday, the neighboring Le Pain Quotidian will host its reopening party, but on Friday, the restaurant will hold a fundraiser for the Studio Oaks park, which also damaged by the flooding, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Both restaurants have other locations around Los Angeles. Il Tramezzino can also be found in Beverly Hills and Tarzana. Le Pain Quotidian has eleven others.
