And what was Moammar’s reaction?
- A. This is a disgrace to the town!
- B. I have eaten sushi from Fresno.
- C. This is the best thing that could happen to Pacific Grove!
The former Lattitudes restaurant at Lover’s Point in Pacific Grove has been purchased by foreign investors for $2.5 million in cash.
Vacant for 4 1/2 years, the new owners plan to turn it into a high-end sushi restaurant, said Moe Ammar, the president of the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce.
“This is the best thing that could happen to Pacific Grove,” he said, noting that The Beach House across the street opened last summer.
Lattitudes, the last restaurant in the 6,683 square foot building, closed in 2010. Before that it housed The Tinnery.
