Du-par's at the Farmers Market is to be remodeled.

Postby bluecherub » Thu Jun 24, 2004 10:27 am

I just heard an announcement on KTLA today that the Naylor family bought the three Dupars including the 3rd street Farmers Market one and intend to remodel them. Can anybody approach them on how important it is to keep their integrity and to preserve the vintage look ?

We've been talking with the Kaufman family for months. We sent a letter and I think they're almost done with the sort of minimal work they were doing. They changed out the formica and upholstery and the flooring. I think the light fixtures were going to go as well. They were old (and damaged) but not original. I think what's done is done -- except for an outdoor patio that cuts into the exterior wall. I'm glad the Tiny Naylor family is back in the restaurant business after selling their last store in Long Beach last year.

There is a story the current LA Times on Dupar's

Seems that 95% is staying the way it is after Naylors buy it-I dunno if any of the structures are distinctively 'Googie' but at least it doesn't seem to be suffering the fate of a 'Ship's'.

I peeked in a week ago and the dining rooms were still intact, but it appeared that the kitchen between Starbucks and Du-par's was being gutted. There was a truck on site and several workmen carrying away huge pieces of metal. I think that kitchen was specifically for baking and was seperated from the restaurant by a public walkway.

Just a guess, but do you think that Naylor will give up the lease on that corner space under the Farmers Market clocktower and rent it out to another possible tenant?

I assume by the brand new sign that Du-par's is getting closer to reopening. So what happened to the old sign? It went to Dumpsterland.

Maybe it's my poor memory, but this sign appears almost identical to the one that was there before. Are you sure it's not just an extensive rehab? Our glorious leader has been in constant communication with Mr. Naylor about the significance of the FM Du-Par's...

It's a brand new sign. The cans, the plastic and frame all appear to be brand new. There's not a spec of age or weathering anywhere on the sign.

And wasn't the old plastic facing a shade of orange?

Does somebody have an older pic so we can compare?

The apostrophe and hyphen are attached differently. Also, the word "restaurant" is a different font than before—note the Rs.

Dupar's

Postby Deco Lover » Fri Jan 05, 2007 6:28 pm

Glad to see that Dupar's has re-opened after being closed for such
a long time. Was concerned that this landmark restaurant was
destined for the history books.

Been awhile since I was there, and am looking forward to
eating there again. :D
