The day after the conclusion of last weekend's Sunset Junction Street

Fair has brought out the expected snapshots, Monday-morning

quarterbacking and music reviews, but the Eastsider L.A. has one unique focus. The blog focuses on the old Eat Well cafe space that

has been closed for two years, and whose shuttered facade, during the fair, stuck out in the row of Silver Lake

boutiques on Sunset Boulevard like a missing tooth.

Eastsider L.A. notes how the

continued closure of one business can have a desultory effect on its

neighbors — which might be an ill-omen for a city still very much in the

grip of recession. Notes the blog:

“The closure has left a big economic hole in the heart of Sunset Junction that has many people wondering why such a prime piece of retail real estate has remained vacant for so long.”
