Eulogies:Avner Sharoni

Owner of Tempo Restaurant, Dies at 49


Avner Sharoni, owner of Tempo restaurant in Encino, died April 13 at the age of 49. In 1977, Sharoni, then a 24-year-old Israeli, moved to Los Angeles after he served in the Israel Defense Force. He bought Art's International Sidewalk Cafe and within a few weeks, had added hummus and pita to the menu and changed the name to Tempo, after the popular Israeli soda.
