Pink Taco is taking form on the onetime Miyagi's site on Sunset Boulevard. Stripped down to a white-washed, three-tiered wooden plank frame, any semblance of Miyagi's is gone. But the strong margaritas should be flowing come March, reports Eater LA.
According to the L.A. food blog, designer Dodd Mitchell was originally hired to overhaul the space at 8225 W. Sunset Blvd. into another Asian-inspired concept called Ming & Mi. When that fell through, Harry Morton, president and CEO of the Pink Taco Mexican restaurant chain, stepped in.
Rumor has it the restaurateur, who in October opened the first non-mobile branch of the Japanese-American truck in Hollywood, is also planning a "secret" bar on the venue's top floor. But let's not get our hopes up.
The closest location now is in the Westfield Century City Mall, a few miles west of Weho on Santa Monica Boulevard. The restaurant chain also has its sights set on Hollywood, San Diego and Miami, according to the Pink Taco website.
The Sunset Strip eatery's hours of operation will likely run from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. For a better idea of the menu, click here.
