NW 23rd's BeWon Shutters; Alberta's Lolo Rebrands

New, 3 comments

NORTHWEST: After languishing on the market for months, looks like BeWon has found a buyer — and they're already moving in. Signage at the location confirms that the NW 23rd Korean restaurant has permanently shuttered, and Hala's Lebanese Grill — which liquor license paperwork reveals is owned by the same LLC behind PSU's Abu Rasheed Lebanese restaurant — is scheduled to take over the spot. Expect a quick turnaround: Scheduled opening date is September 9. [EaterWire]

NE ALBERTA: NE tapas spot Lolo Restaurant — which once featured an Eater-certified Hot Chef in the kitchen — is undergoing a concept switcheroo: The spot has been sold to former Lolo general manager and menu planner Kate Verrill, who, along with partner Rick Barnes, plans to rebrand the restaurant into Bar Lolo to "imbue a more traditional, casual, Barcelonan tapas bar setting," according to a press release. The spot will soon undergo an interior remodel (scheduled to be completed in early September), and an expanded cocktail list will add to the newfound "late night" atmosphere: Bar Lolo plans to be open until (at least) midnight, every night.
