Los Feliz Gains More Bar Space, Less Drama

It's Easy Street for Los Feliz.

Rob Shamlian's Los Feliz taqueria was shut down temporarily during a LES underage-drinking ambush last spring, but that doesn't mean Community Board 3 holds a grudge: They just granted Shamlian swift and unconditional approval to convert two service bars into standup bars at the three-level Los Feliz. Reps from CB3 didn't get back to us, but of the unanimous vote in his favor, Shamlian tells Grub Street, "We've been super clean for years ... we have security; we don't have fights or complaints from neighbors." He says the plans for two standup bars, still subject to approval from the State SLA, is not to draw more customers, "but to serve the patrons proper that we already have."
