As many people in the community are aware, PLG just lost one of its best: Michael Hylton, the Mike behind Mike's International. We don't have a better picture of Mike's on file - we took this one when Mike's was temporarily shut down after a fire in the building above. Our best wishes and thoughts go out to MIke, his friends and family.
We did not know Mike personally, but one of the people who emailed us summed up his presence in the neighborhood nicely:
"Would you mind posting this funeral/viewing info, and saying a few kind words about Mike on ATP? As the founder and owner of a longtime PLG eating institution, Mike and his family have always been friends of those who want to make a difference in our hood. Mike's has historically served as a base for the annual house tour and the restaurant could be counted on to make contributions to various causes (LMA, PPA, etc.)"
