La Belle Epoque becomes Little Dom's

Eating L.A. just spoke to Warner Ebbink, who will be taking over Hillhurst Ave.'s 16-year old La Belle Epoque from longtime owners Eda and George Abrahamian. Ebbink and partner Brandon Boudet, who run Dominick's and the 101 Cafe, will debut Little Dom's in May, if all goes well with remodeling. La Belle Epoque, which has lots of faithful customers including Jessica Simpson and Gwen Stefani, closes Dec. 24.
Ebbink says Little Dom's will have a similar menu to Dominick's and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an Italian deli, pizza station and hopefully, a full liquor license.

I hope Little Dom's won't have the same lousy, hipster service featured at Cafe 101. Seriously, people, if you're too cool to be a waiter, then don't.

Not much can be worse than "Belly Poke", house of made-from-a-mix pastries and dirty carpets.

We wend there the first night it opened and I have to say we are all disappointed. We had a reservation, but we still had to wait over an hour for a table, the food was fine, not great. And in fact, my friend had to send his steak back because it was way too rare for medium-rare.

We are going to try again soon to see if it's the issue of opening night or just bad restaurant
