Representatives from the offices of US Congresswoman Judy Chu, State Senator Anthony Portantino, and State Assemblymember Chris Holden, were on hand to present commendations to the family.

Vice Mayor Andy Wilson called the restaurant a “great addition” to the already vibrant Green Street business community, adding, “Restaurants such as this foster regional job growth, support local economic growth and keep the dollars in the community.”
