Lovers of Gladstone’s restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades probably still have another couple years to enjoy the seafood spot.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved a motion asking the Department of Beaches and Harbors to negotiate a 2-to-5-year agreement with Gladstone’s operator Sea View Restaurants Inc. to keep the restaurant open while it finds a new long-term concessionaire to operate the redeveloped site.

Because a new operator would have to spend money getting the restaurant up to date with regulations, it made the most sense to keep Sea View as the operator, said Michael Rodriguez, Chief Property Manager for the Department of Beaches and Harbors.

Sea View Restaurants Inc., a subsidiary of Pacific Palisades’ California Beach Restaurants Inc., saw gross receipts decline to about $7.8 million for fiscal 2015-2016 from $9.4 million in 2012-2013, according to the county’s request for proposals.
