First I've heard of it but it's not really a surprise to me - The Todai isn't part of the Todai chain (How do they do that?) and their sushi is disgusting; the theater is a $2 movie house and Bally's is pleading for members. Only Chili's and Gyu Kaku are worth going to. Be prepared to see a lot of change along other parts of Beach Blvd and Edinger as well. A lot of places are 50+ y.o. shacks and the city is looking for $Revenue!
I was recently a member of that balley's...that place is filthy disgusting! I hope the Chili's stays since it's right next to my house. So would you say they are closing everyone down to remodel that corner? I had no idea on the Todai place as I don't eat sushi but I love that theater, $3 movies and $1 hot dogs, perfect after getting smashed at chili's.
