Louie’s of Mar Vista Opens Friday, July 5th

Louie’s of Mar Vista is finally opening after years of anticipation in the neighborhood. Friday, July 5th is the official opening day, but a few neighbors got a sneak peek at the place and the menu this week. The consensus? I heard nothing but positive reviews for this family-friendly restaurant with full bar located right in the heart of Mar Vista.
