“Reviews coming soon,” reads the OpenTable page for the Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, a brand new restaurant that may be opening on the Malibu Pier as early as this month. The space has been vacant for nearly 3 years.

The new restaurant, which is currently looking to hire sous chefs, according to a Craigslist post, will be operated by The Lark Creek Restaurant Group, a company based in San Francisco that owns restaurants all around California. The Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar would be the 13th eatery owned by the group.

The space, once home to Alice’s Restaurant, is located at the base of the pier, curbside to Pacific Coast Highway. The area has been filled with the buzzing of construction crews for several months. Last year, pier concessionaire Alexander Leff vowed he would have two new restaurants open before the end of last summer.

The Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar is set to offer “seasonal farm-fresh cuisine with a contemporary seafood focused menu,” according to its Craigslist ad, in a restaurant with large patios, private dining areas and a craft bar program.

There is no word on exactly when the new restaurant will be opening.
