roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

I would call and ask them to be sure. They know how well they can segregate the kitchen and if you might be at risk for contamination.
