Al Levy's Cafe, Hollywood Blvd???

I just came across this photo of Sardi's on Hollywood Blvd and yet we can see "AL LEVY'S CAFE" and "AL LEVY TAVERN" written in neon in what looks like the refection of a window.

Al Levy? on Hollywood Blvd? I nevuh hoid o' such a ting! Was Levy ever on Hollywood Blvd? Or was Sardi's on Vine St? Oh...wait a minute...maybe it was just a neon sign advertising the tavern around the corner? Looks like I need a stiff cocktail at the Blue Room.

(BTW, I did find this interesting article about Al Levy. He had a longer history than I ever knew: http://www.jmaw.org/al-levy-jewish-los-angeles/)
