So much has happened in our blogging absence! We are getting very close to opening, and its actually starting to look like a restaurant. Hectic and obstacle-ridden is an understatement for what we’ve been through over the last month. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though, so lets just get on with the build!
Part of Santa Monica’s regulations prohibit us from chopping up the concrete sidewalks and streets, so one of the few solutions we could find was a grease trap on steroids. This thing is so sick on paper! According to the manufacturer, it separates solids so effectively that they can be used as biodiesel grade fats. Its 630 gallon capacity works with higher efficiency than the standard in-ground concrete grease interceptors, so let’s hope we only need to pump this sucker every couple of months.
