GLENDALE — City Zoning Administrator Edith Fuentes may let the troubled Adams Square restaurant De Revolution reopen if she finds the owners are operating the eatery in full compliance with local regulations. “If they are indeed a full-service restaurant, I don’t see a reason . . . not to approve the permit,” Fuentes said during a fact finding hearing Wednesday morning. Zoning violations at De Revolution, at 1022 E. Chevy Chase Dr., were discovered after residents complained that the eatery was operating as a banquet hall — a violation of their conditional use permit — and was charging a cover fee for entrance late at night.

Amber Willard SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Glendale Police are searching for a man who grabbed a woman's purse from her arm as she sat in a KFC restaurant. The woman, who police believe was followed to the restaurant from a bank where she withdrew money, was sitting at a booth Wednesday evening when a man walked in and wrestled her purse away from her, police said. A second man waited at the door of the restaurant at 1235 S. Central Ave., and both men ran across the street to a waiting SUV, the woman told police.

GLENDALE — Owners of De Revolution say they will reopen to the public in July despite Zoning Administrator Edith Fuentes’ decision last week to revoke their operating permit for what she said were numerous city code violations. “There were some parts of the ruling we did agree with and others we didn’t,” said attorney Mary Der-Parseghian, who represents De Revolution owners Aram Manoukian and Tamara Sarkisian. The couple have already submitted a new application for the city to review, she said.

Recently, the grand opening was held for Wise Guys Italian Bistro in Montrose. My girlfriend and I arrived just after 7 p.m. to have dinner, but the restaurant was full of people so we had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. The restaurant had a special grand opening menu with discounted prices on wine and beer, entrees and desserts. While waiting for our table and while we dined, we were entertained by Norman Panto, an accomplished accordionist who has been playing for decades. He had the diners clapping along with his songs in addition to receiving a round of applause after every song he played.

DOWNTOWN ? In hopes of making money in a busy downtown location that didn?t work for its predecessor, BJ?s Restaurant and Brewhouse opened its doors to Glendale on Monday. Parked at the corner of Brand Boulevard and Broadway, on the ground floor of the Glendale City Center at 101 N. Brand Blvd., the restaurant?s new stainless steel facade beckoned passersby to test the newly opened eatery. The sign was familiar to Irvine resident Shannon Shin, who randomly stopped in for lunch to enjoy some deep-dish pizza.

GLENDALE — The owners of The Montrose Collection restaurant have filed a $2-million slander lawsuit against four critics who have publicly claimed the building is primarily a banquet hall and violating city zoning codes. The four defendants named in the complaint include longtime community activist Margaret Hammond and three neighbors who live behind the restaurant — Robert and Sharon Thompson and Loren Harris. The suit stems from comments they have made to city planners and at City Council meetings in which they accuse The Montrose Collection’s owners, Arman and Takui Aivazian, of using the building at 2831 Honolulu Ave. as a banquet hall and violating other municipal codes such as barbecuing outside and creating a parking nuisance in the neighborhood.

One day, on an impromptu visit to the Verdugo Adobe, I met with Julie Shermer and Ann Denis of the Days of Verdugo Heritage Assn. They had just received a donation of business and menu cards from the restaurants operated by Dora Verdugo. The cards were a gift from Roy Tomlin, who still lives down the street from Verdugo?s old house on Elk Avenue. Tomlin often spent after-school time with Verdugo. ?Dora considered us her grandchildren. She was like my third grandmother,? Tomlin said.

Locals looking to get their Korean food fix or just grab a meal downtown have a new restaurant option on Brand Boulevard. Tofu Village, the first Glendale venue in a Southern California restaurant franchise that serves tofu stew and other East Asian food, opened July 11 in a space most recently occupied by Takeshi Ramen, a Japanese restaurant. The Glendale restaurant joins the Tofu Village, which opened on Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta nearly a year ago, as well as versions in Alhambra, Little Tokyo and other Los Angeles-area locations.

It is easy for homeowners associations to get reputations with a whole slate of “not in my backyard”-related positions ranging from oversized mansions to businesses behaving badly. Some of these are deserved, I suppose, but many more are justified. The problems that residents of Adams Hill have with the latest incarnation of the De Revolution restaurant (“Troubled restaurant may be allowed to reopen,” June 12) is a clear case of the latter. The issues Neighborhood Services presented at the conditional-use permit revocation hearing before Zoning Administrator Edith Fuentes focused primarily on whether De Revolution’s operations without building permits and with expanded seating violated the terms of their original conditional-use permits.
