New Looks Coming to HPK, Mia Sushi

Rudy Martinez, local restaurant owner, is looking to revamp HPK and Mia Sushi.

Rudy Martinez, owner of Highland Park Kitchen, confirmed on Tuesday that a new look is coming to the York Boulevard restaurant.

As reported on Eater L.A. Monday, a Public Notice of Application for Ownership Change was posted on HPK's window Monday. The new owner is listed as Apophenia LLC.

Martinez, who spoke outside the restaurant on Tuesday, said that he would remain involved with the restaurant, despite the pending ownership change. He said HPK would be getting a whole new look and a new chef.

"It was just time for a fresh start," Martinez said.

Similar changes are planned for Mia Sushi on Eagle Rock Boulevard, Martinez said.

He declined to comment further on the changes.

"I want it to be a surprise," he said.

I agree with Punky! Some people can be amused by the company they keep. We don't all need the Kardashians drooling on some TV in the background.

How about a place for adults? Marty's started off that way but blossomed into a loud yell fest. Although those sliders were killer! I'd like to see something between BA and Marty's only without the $100 check.

How about a taco place or water purification store?

Maybe this Rudy should get out of the neighborhood. He's never had a successful business and obviously doesn't know what the community needs.

Bill doesn't know what he's talking about. I hope Rudy stays and gives us a cigar lounge. Leather club chairs, big screen TV's, single malts and big reds. No hookahs, no kids, no wimps. C'mon Rudy, Man up!!
