It's not a mountain peak, just a mountain of hash browns: K2 as in Kokomo 2 has (finally!) opened on Sunset in the old EatWell space. For the old-old timers, back in the 80s this spot was home to Seafood Bay, a bargain-priced chowder and fish house. Here's a report from EaterLA, but for the record, I am way not into the SiLa moniker for Silver Lake. What's next, EcPa? LoFe? Expect Kokomo's giant salads, hearty breakfasts and satisfying sandwiches, some with a vaguely Cajun twist like the reliable blackened catfish sandwich.
Papa's Place is now open on Hillhurst with an intriguing mix of Turkish and German sandwiches, sausages and salads. Bratwurst and tabbouleh, anyone? Here's a preview from UrbanDaddy; not much news yet from people who have actually eaten there. It's always good to see another reasonably-priced option in the neighborhood.
Sunset Beer will open early next year in the mini-mall opposite A Grocery Warehouse, reports the EastsiderLA. It's owned by the folks from Eagle Rock's popular Colorado Wine and aims to eventually have a tasting room and store with 1,000 bottles of craft beer. And if you want to argue about public drunkenness, head over to the comments section of the Eastsider blog.
