Edendale Grill sold; Covell Wine Bar makes progress
It looks like the Edendale Grill has finally been sold -- I guess owner Melanie Tusquellas wanted to concentrate on El Chavo, El Chavito and the upstairs mini-hotel El Tres Inn. The new owner will be Mixville bartender/actor/musician Eddie Ebell. Wouldn't it be wonderful if he decided to bring in a really good chef with a solid concept, since it's such a great space?
Kathy votes for a casual gourmet breakfast/lunch spot -- think Square One with a bar. What would you like to see there?
Update: Ebell says, I can tell you that after bartending there for the last 2 1/2 years, I look forward to giving it the TLC it needs." Hope he reads all these comments! (photo LATimes)
Meanwhile, Matthew Kaner, formerly of Silver Lake Wine, is coming along well on the new Covell Bar on Hollywood Blvd. near Yuca's. He's got some construction shots up on his Facebook page, with a 4-6 week opening estimate.
