Eatz Be Gone?

Here on this week's all-restaurant, all-the-time Atwater Village Newbie, a concerned reader wants to know:

Driving past Eatz [3207 Los Feliz Blvd.] I saw white plastic tarps hanging over the windows, and the restaurant name has disappeared off the building. Couple this with the fact that they've been closed several Sundays lately, I can't help but worry they're shutting down. Any news?

Tuesday I saw a handwritten window sign saying Eatz is undergoing renovation, thanks for your patience, we'll re-open shortly. It was no ruse; workers were moving things around. The cafe, known for some of the cheapest breakfasts on the northest side, might be getting this badly-needed makeover from a new owner, based on this tidbit from Curbed LA:

Eatz Cafe, golf course adjacent on Los Feliz, and the Roosevelt Cafe at the Roosevelt golf course near the Greek Theatre, (both with beer licenses and both operated by the same people), have been sold to Byoung Woo Lee.

Hmm, is that Byung-woo Lee the composer? Maybe he'll rename it Beatz.
