Militant Angeleno drops the word that a new restaurant called 5 Line is setting up shop on Colorado Blvd. in Eagle Rock. After taking a peek at the floor plans, the bellicose blogger notes that the aesthetic here is influenced by the ghost of public transportation past, based on the history of L.A.’s old yellow railway cars, with the five line once standing as the longest line in our long-gone train system. The project appears to be coming from next-door Corner Pizzeria, which announced plans for a new bar called 5 Line last fall. [Militant Angeleno]
