Signage almost looks fake [Angelenic]
1) Downtown: Via Angelenic, Blu LA Cafe opens on the ground floor of the Pacific Electric Lofts on Tuesday, Nov. 11. The entrance is right next to Cole's but has separate owners; the cafe will serve American classics for breakfast, lunch and dinner. [126 E 6th St, 213.488.2088; website]
2) Brentwood: According to Food GPS, that second outpost of Caffe Luxxe (original is in Santa Monica) opened in the former Dutton's bookstore today. However, the phone number from information is a disconnected line. It's a gamble. [11975 San Vicente Blvd; website]
3) West Hollywood: Zagat has news that the uber-exclusive Sunset Marquis hotel opened its restaurant (yes, to the public) about six weeks ago. Still just called the Sunset Marquis Restaurant. Limited details, but the indoor/outdoor space overlooks the pond and waterfall and is open from breakfast through dinner. Menu sounds like it covers the hotel-dining basics (burgers, pasta, salads at lunch, and seafood, steaks, risotto at dinner). Sounds like a far cry from the celery stick and supermodel jokes currently on the website. [1200 Alta Loma Rd., 310.657.1333; website]
