I’m hearing the Proud Bird restaurant and Los Angeles World Airports remain in discussions about a long-term lease. Regular readers of this space know the Proud Bird, a Los Angeles International Airport fixture since 1967, planned to close for good in December due to a rent dispute with its landlord, the airport.
From what I hear, it’s possible the restaurant could reach a deal to stay open. But it might be several weeks until we know for sure.
This denotes some progress, because as recently as a couple of months ago, the two sides were essentially at impasse.
