Hope they are able to maintain quality at the larger venue. I did like the old location, small and cozy, a perfect neighborhood restaurant. Wishing them the best.
i kinda have a problem with them painting over a classic sign like that
i read on their twitter feed that they were having problems getting rid of it
too bad someone from the victoria inn family can't have it
or some museum
i wonder what happened to all the old signs that were in the space above gordon biersch?
what was it called?
big island steakhouse or something like that
they were associated with pinky's in aikahi
I'm guessing they are having issues with the sign permit. I've never seen anyone paint out an illuminated sign before.
removing the plastic panel with the words victoria inn isn't a big deal physically, there is no reason not to give it to the family - if they want it. I have trouble seeing it as iconic, after all signs like that weren't common until the 1970's. its not like the neon sign for McCully Chop Sui that was there from the 1940s. But its all a matter of perspective I suppose.
