Q & A with Post & Beam's Brad Johnson
The Times' Patt Morrison has an interesting question and answer with Brad Johnson, the restaurateur behind such various locations as Roxbury, Memphis and BLT Steak. Guess what? His father was restaurateur Howard Johnson. OK, as he says, "not that Howard Johnson." And, he says, Post & Beam is drawing people to Ladera Heights who might not otherwise have visited the neighborhood.
People who had no idea where Baldwin Hills is [now] say, hey, it's not that far from Hancock Park, from Culver City. [They] leave a couple of hours early for the airport and have dinner here. The other night Nancy Silverton was coming back from LAX and stopped in and had dinner.
