Under construction: Playa Provisions

This concept sounds great and could be a boon to Playa del Rey, especially since that location is one of those places that hasn't been able to sustain a restaurant (its most recent, unsuccessful incarnations were Tower 42 and Playa Cantina).

From Eater LA:
...a four-in-one concept setup reminiscent of a town country mart. First, a more casual breakfast-through-dinner counter called King Beach, an ice cream shop named Small Batch, a back room whiskey bar operating as Grain, and a more high end, sit-down dining space, Dockside, which will boast top-notch seafood and more.
The big question is how they're going to fit all those into that space.  Last weekend I was in the area and stopped by to see how the makeover was progressing.

Heading around to the front (Culver Boulevard) side.
Front build out.
The old Tower 42 sign was still up as of last weekend.
Damn graffiti.
Corner of Culver and Pacific.

The part that's been worked on actually looks pretty good, but it also looks like there's still a lot to be done, so I'm not sure they're going to be opening as soon as this month. The previous target date was December.
