The Great Glendale Takeover of 2007

Restaurant Takeover
FROM WHAT HAS BEEN hailed as the best restaurant mapping thingy ever, comes this breaking news. Urbanspoon maps show that former northeast Los Angeles neighborhood Atwater Village has been claimed in a hostile takeover by the adjacent city of Glendale.

More than 80 years after the failed Tropico-LA-Glendale Mega-Merger, this new foodie invasion is leaving a suburban aftertaste in the mouths of Atwater Village residents.
  • Asia Los Feliz, previously named for a neighborhood on the other side of Atwater Village, could be redubbed Asia Glendale, immediately losing cred with anyone under age 50
  • Tam O'Shanter Inn, formerly the 3rd most popular restaurant in Atwater Village, is now the 4th most popular restaurant in Glendale
  • Canele, to maintain its media darling status, must now attempt to impress those hard-asses at the Glendale News Press
I guess despite how the mayor of Los Angeles corrected him on the air, FOX11 reporter Rick Lozano was right all along.

Doh! Our mistake, I'm sorry! I've just gone through and moved those restaurants out of Glendale and back to LA where they belong. We now have Atwater Village listed together under Los Feliz.

Oh, and if anyone knows what Eatz Cafe at 3207 Los Feliz Blvd is now called, please let me know so I can change it. Thanks!

Always the last to know... gotta update our (City of Glendale) Annexation map to include Atwater. :)

Eatz Cafe is now Los Feliz Cafe. I do believe the menu has been updated as well. - Atwater Village Newbie

Damn -- Glendale is in dire need of some decent restaurants, so I'm all for annexing Atwater. Sorry guys! We're coming for you.
