The last remaining Clifton's Cafeteria in Downtown, the forest-themed one on Broadway, has been purchased by Andrew Meieran, owner of The Edison, says Blogdowntown. Meieran is expected to add a speakeasy and tiki bar on the upper levels and add to the menu, reportedly while keeping the low-cost items that draw people into the cafeteria. "We are exciting about the prospect of being involved in the revitalization of Broadway and the one of the nation's most historic eating establishments," Meieran says. "We hope to continue Clifton's incredible legacy as the cultural, social and architectural landmark in Los Angeles."
