Matt tries Scoops' American Zombie flavor (Red Bull, red wine, anise sorbet) on top of another zombie creation, avocado foie gras (and brains?)
Now, the news...Rudolpho's on Riverside Drive has been bought by Home. No word yet on whether Home will keep their Hillhurst location as well. Rudy and Nina del Campo will hold on to Casita del Campo on Hyperion.
Canele has started serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm. Dishes include omelettes, quiches, eggs en cocotte, shirred eggs with chorizo, French toast and apple cobbler.
Another new pizza place is coming, this time to Los Feliz. Cruzer has already opened a location in Glendale and is taking over the old Cap'n Cork location at Hillhurst and Prospect. This location was first going to be the Desert Rose, then Yxta, but it's not easy to get permits for drinking, patios, entertainment, etc. on that street, so perhaps something a bit less ambitious like pizza was the only thing that would work. As long as they get rid of all that graffiti soon...
