I don't know if anyone else has posted this...but I'm told that the J.R. Seafood restaurant over on Santa Monica Boulevard has been purchased by the people who own Hop Li (the one on Pico and the one in Chinatown).
I think this is good news. J.R. used to be a great restaurant but the last few times there, I found the food indifferent and the service worst. If they can bring it up to Hop Li standards, it will be a big improvement.
