Notes for Thursday

Heard about a new group called the Los Angeles Restaurant Historical Society via LAObserved. The group's first meeting on March 18 will feature Jim Heimann, Charles Perry, and Jonathon Foerstel of LATimeMachines.

A Chowhound contact reports that the famous Renu Nakorn might close next to get there soon just in case. I called the restaurant and they said the building was sold, but they're still waiting to hear from the landlord.

Franklin Avenue's Rate-a-restaurant visits Yuca's and the Eagle Rock Coffee Table.

LACitynerd starts a series on how to order at famous L.A. eating spots.

Also closed or closing, if anyone cares: Cha Cha Cha in Encino, and The Old Spaghetti Factory in Hollywood for yet more condos.

And finally, L.A. Citybeat adds a new restaurant reviewer -- bon vivant and friend of Eating L.A., Martin Booe will contribute along with regular reviewer Richard Foss. Here's his first article from a few weeks ago about Mexican gems...although Citybeat should be able to figure out how to spell Yuca's, you would think.

WAIT...what???!! Renu Nakorn, closing? Where did you see this? I looked on Chowhound but couldn't find the post you cited. IMO, the best food and best value in L.A.

You'd think City Beat could figure out how to spell "Frida Kahlo," too.
