After many long months of anticipation, the opening of Uncle Paulie’s deli on Beverly Boulevard has finally arrived. If you like an old school, East Coast Italian-American deli, you will not want to miss this place. Just west of Kings Road Cafe, the venue offers a small but quality menu of Italian hero sandwiches served hot or cold, imported cold cuts sold by the pound, house-made mozzarella and side salads. Perhaps most memorable is the delicious bread made perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. There is counter seating inside and a few outdoor tables.

An important component of the new and improved retail center is the Street, a food court on the shopping mall’s top floor curated by James Beard Award winning chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Michael Mina. Heading the renovation, international Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas is staying true to his vision of a light and airy space as revealed by new photos of the remodel. The food hall is centered around a 52 foot waterfall-style glass ceiling flooding the venue with natural light and offering sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills and Downtown.

West Hollywood Mayor, Lauren Meister, is asking the city council to impose a moratorium on new hotel development pending a study of their economic impact on the city’s economy. The mayor’s request follows a recent analysis by PFK Consulting and CBRE Hotels predicting a significant decline in hotel occupancy and room rates given the large number of new hotels under construction or under review. Notable openings for this year include the James Hotel, a 286 room project slated to open in May, and the 105 room Kimpton La Peer scheduled to open this summer. The PFK/CBRE report shows a possible sixty percent increase in the city’s supply of hotel rooms over the next few years. The report also projects a 15% decrease in occupa...

In January, the Beverly Hills City Council approved an emergency rent control ordinance providing temporary relief to tenants facing potential ten percent annual increases. The ordinance capped annual rent increases at three percent, included relocation fee requirements for no-cause evictions, and established an apartment registry to help the city monitor rent conditions. After a lengthy and contentious meeting, the ordinance was voted in by the council despite protests of landlords present at the session. In February, the council unanimously voted to extend the ordinance while adding a provision to allow rent increases beyond three percent in the event the consumer price index exceeds that amount. The council hopes to adopt a final ordinance later this year and will be scheduling public forums to allow residents and landlords to voice their concerns. While some changes to the current ordinance may take place, it is likely that the prior ten percent cap on annual rent increases will become a thing of the past.
