LAX Theme Building Progress

As of Friday, January 11, 2008, we see that the work is proceeding apace:

The latest news still targets fall 2008 as a completion date . . . though that's a 3-month wide span.

Although the scaffolding and debris-shoots are an ugly distraction--you get a hint of that from the second picture--the restaurant itself is well worth visiting.

For lunch on Friday, the Cobb Salad was great, with a pressed layer of bleu cheese on top, and sides of sliced avocado holding the lettuce in the shape of a precious little pillbox hat. Other ingredients were in neat piles on the plate.

That and coffee cost $25. No bread, but a filling meal anyway. Efficient and courteous service. Valet parking's $6, which seems reasonable.
