This, as it happens, is an old sign here in Malibu. Granita, one of our best restaurants, shut its doors on Oct. 1 back in 2005. No more martinis and burgers at the cozy bar, no more dinners or parties or brunches (oh, the homemade donuts) in the feels-like-you're-underwater dining room. It's just an empty building now, where visitors peer through dusty windows, pry seashells from the outside wall.
The site, one of many retail spaces in Malibu hit with hefty rent hikes, has been empty ever since Wolfgang Puck said goodbye. Looks like a perfect place for Urth, don't you think?
