After more than 60 years in operation, the owners of this Silver Lake fixture were compelled by the neighborhood’s newly enacted zoning ordinance to convert their family-style Italian trattoria into a poke shop within 48 hours or face eviction. In accordance with civil code 27: 21 C, the new eatery, hereby known as Landone’s Poke, must paint over its dining room mural of a Tuscan village and replace it with a massive cresting wave beneath the words “aloha nui loa” or lose their restaurant permit and risk forcible removal from the premises. As soon as husband-and-wife owners Joseph and Maria Landone have updated their restaurant with the required blue lighting and smiling tuna logo, we recommend stopping in for their city-mandated Oahu Bowl menu item before their shop is ordered to become a Thai rolled ice cream parlor in four weeks.

Zoning Commissioners Are Saying: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I don’t make the rules. The ordinance says this place needs to be serving sesame seaweed salad.”
