Lyon’s demolition

The wrecking ball finally comes to the old, and annoyingly blighted, Lyon’s Restaurant building on Pacific Avenue and Yokuts this coming Tuesday.

The building is making way for an Elephant Bar. 


By day Lyon’s was a mild-mannered restaurant with a menu featuring the word “zesty.” By night Lyon’s transformed into a more urban hangout for nighthawks and aficionados of scrambled eggs at 3 a.m.

The building’s long vacancy and graffiti-covered condition caused complaints. But I’ll miss the building’s rakish ’60s modern architecture. It was, well, zesty.
