Kennedy Wilson Closes Lease for The Waffle in Westwood Village
Restaurant known for modern comfort food expands to second LA location
Christine Deschaine, senior vice president of brokerage at Kennedy Wilson, represented the landlord, Tucker Investment Group, with Newmark Grubb Knight Frank who also represented The Waffle.
"Westwood Village is experiencing a notable resurgence, and The Waffle is a perfect match for the demographics, especially with UCLA's more than 37,000 students just a short walk away," said Deschaine. "Restaurant consumers in the area are looking for a modern sit-down environment with a local feel, and The Waffle has a strong appeal to this generation."
The Waffle is the brainchild of owners Gain Polone and John Papsidera. The business partners opened their first location at 6255 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood out of their love for classic American diners. After building a cult following, the owners decided to expand to the West LA market.
The Waffle is moving into a space formerly occupied by the iconic Jerry's Deli. The restaurant joins a shopping center situated in the heart of Westwood Village, the home of UCLA, between Westwood Boulevard and Broxton Avenue. Nearby tenants in the center, anchored by the Regency Bruin Theater, include Pieology Pizzeria, Diddy Riese and Aveda Institute Los Angeles.
