Public School 805 Coming to The Promenade at Westlake in Summer 2013

Update 5/13/13: Public School 805 indicates on its website that class will be in session in June. They are currently hiring. Visit their Facebook page at for more information.

Posted 1/26/13: Public School is a new gastropub style full-service dining concept that is preparing to open in early summer of 2013 in Westlake Village at The Promenade at Westlake, next to The Grill on the Alley. As you can see from the photos below, Public School 805 is "An Education in the Art of Food and Beer."

There are currently two other Public School locations, the Public School 612 flagship location next to the Daily Grill in Downtown Los Angeles and Public School 310 in Culver City. I'm looking at the dinner menu at Public School 310 as I type this and see interesting things like Jidori Brick Chicken & White Bean Ragout, Sliced New York Strip with Chimichurri and Mustard Glazed Scottish Salmon. I'm also seeing dozens of unique draught and bottled craft beers and a large variety of other beers and wines. This should be a worthy addition to the Conejo Valley.

Grill Concepts, the owner of Public School, also owns and manages The Grill on the Alley and Daily Grill. The Grill on the Allley originally opened in 1984 in Beverly Hills and now has seven restaurants in four states. The Daily Grill began operations in 1988 and today has 21 locations in eight states.

You can actually own a stake in these restaurants. Grill Concepts is based in Woodland Hills and trades on the Over the Counter "Pink Sheets" market under symbol GLLC. While I love their food, at 33 cents a share and with sparse publicly available financial information, I'd steer clear of the stock.
