Yes, it's the end of the day, but what better to start the weekend with then some hot restaurant gossip?! We couldn't wait until Monday for this. Got a hot tip? You know what to do.
This just in: The Mediterranean-theme Oasis Restaurant on La Brea closed, and we hear Mark Peel, owner/chef of Campanile, has swooped the space up. Just a stone's throw from ex-wife (and business partner) Nancy Silverton's Mozza restaurants, it looks like a wine bar/shop concept is in store. The most confirmation we have at this point is the phone message that "Oasis is closed until further notice." We'll have more info after the weekend.
