Plywood Report: The Waffle, BonChon Chicken, POP Champagne & Dessert Bar

HOLLYWOOD: The above snap is of The Waffle, an "upscale 24-hour diner concept with a full bar" from the combined efforts of chef Scooter Kanfer-Cartmill and "two Hollywood heavyweights." According to the Craigslist ad for cooks, The Waffle is scheduled for January. Workmen on-site yesterday, as were skateboarders using extra plywood for ramps right out front. The restaurant anchors the NW corner of the 6255 Sunset building right across from Magnolia and the Bowery. [PLYWOOD]

KOREATOWN: Do two things go better together than fried chicken and karaoke? We think not. Angelenic has it that NYC-import BonChon Chicken will give nearby Kyochon chicken a run for its money when it opens in the Royal Plaza on the northwest corner of 6th and Catalina. BonChon promises "minimized fat, high in protein, and low in cholesterol." And karaoke. [PLYWOOD]


PASADENA: A tipster noticed this license hanging in the window on Union Street in Old Town, near the Container Store. The concept of Pop Champagne & Dessert Bar needs little explanation, and we only know a few details: The young owners hope to offer more than 300 Champagnes and dessert wines, plus artisanal beers and desserts from a Ritz-Carlton-trained pastry chef. There may be some connnection with the POP Champagne brand. February is a target date, but from this pic, it looks pretty undeveloped and empty inside. [PLYWOOD]
