The Dish: Spitz, Lucky Strike Lanes, Talesai Open

Welcome back to the Dish Report, our constant, weekly tracking of what's new around town. See something we missed? Drop any tips and pics right here.

1) Downtown: After months of tracking, the second outpost of Spitz, "Home of the Doner Kabob," opens in the ground floor of the Hakiri apartments in Little Tokyo tomorrow (Tue., Nov 25). If you don't know what a doner kabob is, it's basically schwarma, slow-roasted meat carved in thin slices from a rotating spit, slapped in some thin bread and topped with sauce. J. Gold calls Spitz's version "admirable." This new location will have beer and wine, and instead of gelato (like the Eagle Rock original), it's going with a fruit-cart theme for dessert. Serves lunch and dinner daily; open late. [371 E. 2nd Street, 213.613.0101; website]

2) Downtown: After a grand opening party on Friday, the L.A. Live Lucky Strike Lanes officially opens to public tonight. Some photos from Curbed show the lounge, lanes, the bars. As with the other locations, the menu is filled with with bar/comfort food-type snacks. [800 W. Olympic Blvd (at LA Live), 213.542.4880; website]

3) West Hollywood: Thai standard Talesai closed for renovations and reopens tomorrow (Tue., Nov. 25). The kitchen and dining room were revamped, and the menu has new and classic Thai dishes. Son Kris Yenbamroong has taken over from his father Prakas. [9043 Sunset Blvd, 310.275.9724; website]
