Long Beach's Bouchees Turns Back into Smooth's Sports Grill

By

Chef Tony Zervas, the owner of Long Beach's Bouchees, unexpectedly left his business yesterday, so the building's landlord took over. In only a few hours, John Morris resuscitated the site's former sports bar concept Smooth's, which opened at 4:00 P.M. last night. While Smooth's returns with a short menu of burgers, pizzas, buffalo wings, and salads, Zervas, who relocated Bouchees from Long Beach Blvd., has not announced plans for a rebirth.
