What new Silver Lake restaurant is looking for a manager with a high standard of service? Too bad the old ones aren’t looking for that! Could be Fritzie’s, which is going to re-open with the same owner but a different name and chef; or Andiamo, the new pizza/pasta place on Sunset.
EaterLA reports that out of respect to the Tiki Ti, Johnny’s bar will not turn into a tiki bar after all, but Bobby Green plans to reopen the bar with a different concept.
Montrose continues to spiff up with Café Montrose, a new “modern American bistro and wine bar” opening on Honolulu, just down the street from all the action in Sparr Heights.
I never even knew the area was called Sparr Heights, but it's become quite the foodie desination with gourmet shop and small plates restaurant Ingredients, Rosso Wine Shop with weekend tastings, Bashan Restaurant, the venerable La Cabanita and more.
Via reader Billyboy and EagleRock Talk we're up to date on Eagle Rock news:
The Coffee Table's CT Lounge plans to open in March, with microbrews and music added to the Coffee Table menu.
Hamburger stand the Bucket has a new owner and is adding new beers -- time to get over there for a burger soon.
Frozen yogurt is flooding into the Rock -- Lemongrass 2 next to Lemongrass will offer yogurt (it would be interesting if they had lemongrass-flavored yogurt) and Blue Dot Yogurt will be made from fresh ingredients, not powders.
The most ambitious spot planned for Eagle Rock at the moment is Local 79 on Colorado, owned by a former Chateau Marmont chef (not sure if it's Mohammad Islam?), with the designer of Tiara consulting, will feature seasonal produce, roasts, braises, beer and wine.
