Mike from Franklin Ave. made it to KP's one last time...alas, EatingLA wasn't able to say goodbye.
Mike also let us now that the long-rumored wine bar or wine shop w/tastings or what-have-you is nearly ready to open next to the new Starbucks in Atwater. Here's more from Franklin Ave.
A Chowhounder reports the addition to La Buca on Melrose is up and running...also very long in the making.
And this is out of the hood, but I can't resist the baby foodie stories....Pommebebe is opening in Newport Beach offering "fresh, organic baby food" with a "seasonal menu" from a "five-star chef" -- I know there's already a kidfood takeout operation in New York, but this is the first one I've heard of in Southern California. I remember back in the day when we used to throw some random steamed carrots in food processor and pop it in the ice cube trays...and how exciting it was when Earth's Best babyfood first went on sale.
