What is and isn't opening in L.A.
EaterLA did a handy wrap-up on what is and isn't opening around town -- what the heck is happening Downtown? So many announced restaurants, so few that look to be opening soon.
In Silver Lake, Crackhead Minimall continues its transformation into Good Eating Minimall with the imminent arrival of Garage Pizza, joining Saito's Sushi, Agra Indian and Nadpob Thai. There's more Italian coming to the minimall further down Sunset, as well as Mongolian barbecue. We also hear there's changes afoot at Michelangelo's on Silver Lake Blvd. Eat Well seems to be permanently closed -- a great location for someone if they can manage to banish those pesky critters for good.
In Echo Park, Cafe Stella's owners are getting Artisan off the ground, while we await the arrival of Two Boots Pizza. Meanwhile, 15 is packing them in.
Any Eagle Rock and Highland Park updates? We're planning on trying Brownstone Pizza soon and for shame, I still haven't been to Bashan...any other recs in the area?
In South Pasadena, diners are awaiting the re-opening of Gus's Barbecue in February, hoping the new owners from The Original Top's Burgers will keep the great neon sign and revamp the menu. There's some details of the new menu on the website, including succotash with edamame, chopped salad with mango and gruyere mac 'n cheese.
