The Dish: El Caserio in Silverlake, Viet Noodle Bar, Pitfire Pizza, Red Mango

More dish coming your way. See something open, or about to, in the neighborhood? Do spread the love. Tips and snaps, right this way.

SILVER LAKE: A reader queries: "For years the nondescript building on the southwest corner of Silverlake Boulevard and London has been fronted by one of those aggressive Spanish-language insurance agency signs. Well, that sign came down awhile ago and afterward some work was done to brighten up the building (new paint/greenery). Next came signage for what I thought was a new Ecuadoran/Italian eatery "now serving lunch and dinner" called El Caserio. But via Google I found a two- year-old CityBeat review of the place, except its address is nearby on 309 N. Virgil. So I guess what I'm wondering is if you fine folks at EaterLA know if this is a brand new place or if the existing El Caserio has simply relocated to fresher digs." To cut to the chase: Yes, El Caserio opened a second location about 10 days ago. It is Ecuadorian and Italian, and it's open every day but Monday, 11am-11pm. [401 Silverlake Blvd., 213.273.8945]

ATWATER VILLAGE: Viet Noodle Bar, an offshoot of Silverlake's Soy Cafe opened today. According to Daily Candy: "the decor is simple: white walls, two long, communal tables, and books piled high along a shelf that runs the length of the room." Within you'll find homemade soy milk and "cleansing tonics"; expect pho in December. [3133 Glendale Blvd, 323.906.1575]

WESTWOOD: Somehow we missed this (especially since we came across three emails about it...sorry!), but Pitfire Pizza opened in Westwood a couple months ago, in the old Westwood Country Mart across from Wally's. They're pulling out all stops to get people in the door: We got an email today with a coupon for buy-one-get-one-free entree between 11am-6pm daily. [2018 Westwood Blvd, 310.481.9860]

NORTHRIDGE: The Froyo Wars are not over, people. Red Mango opened another outlet today. [18514 Devonshire St, 818.245.9986]
