As Atwater Village Newbie pointed out recently, the renaming of Asia Los Feliz as Asia Bistro didn't long...it's now Kuma Sushi with new management. Asia wasn't that bad, but it was way overpriced and a little foofy for the neighborhood, and never really found its audience.
Coming to Sunset Blvd. next to the former Johnnie's Bar, which will be renamed Stinkers, is Local from chef Jason Michaud, formerly of Three Drunken Goats in Montrose. It looks pretty nice and almost ready to roll inside, but there's not a lot of parking along that stretch. Here's more from Zagat.
And it looks like Desert Rose on Hillhurst is also ready to go, but the phone number and email aren't working. I don't want to pass judgement before a place opens, but this concept also seems a little out of place for the neighborhood.
