Kung Pao Bistro in Studio City reopened in new location

Kung Pao Bistro reopens today following its relocation to 11402 Ventura Boulevard, in the center with Video West, etc., in the space where Fat Jack's used to be.

    1. I went by there yesterday and had no idea that they had moved. I'm not sure where the new place is; not familiar with video west or fat jacks. Are they closer to Laurel or further away?
      They've been my go-to Chinese place since they opened.

        About 1/2 mile east of current location. At Tujunga.

          Thanks, wiener. I'll give them a little time to settle in. Hopefully Jimmy has replaced the "Dragon Lady" behind the counter with a human.

      2. Fat Jack's is gone? Wow. I probably haven't been there in over a decade (as I no longer live near there), but it's still a shock. That place had been around forever (it predated my move to the neighborhood in 1977). I remember when it was just a free-standing building, before that shopping center was built, and the scrolling marquee that announced their (slightly off color) slogan: "Best Meat in Town. If you can't eat it...beat it."

          last owner was the 3rd owner in the past 5 years, and thus the decline.
          Was not the same operation you remember.
