Have you been to Pann’s? One of my favorite diners with the googie style building. The patty melt is delicious. It’s on La Tijera so as bonus it’s a stop to and from LAX. (Y’all taking La Tijera as a shortcut right?)
Funny - I drive past that Venice location at least once a day, and it’s been under construction for maybe two years now. Maybe longer, ie pre-pandemic. Sign on Venice Blvd does indeed say something like House of Pies - coming 2022. BF and I were just talking on Sunday about whether it’s ever going to open.
Nice to see that Farley Elliott linked my LA Weekly article on the history of The House of Pies. I enjoyed doing the research and story behind the House of Pies, being old enough to have been a kid when they were all over. It’s interesting how many of the distinctive cottage-style buildings are still around and housing restaurants. Quite unlike, say, The Lone Ranger restaurants
