WEST HOLLYWOOD: While we're still awaiting Laurent Tourondel's big entrance to the LA scene with BLT Steak (late Feb-early March), we did learn who LT selected as chef de cuisine: Noah Rosen, most recently chef de cuisine at Wilshire in Santa Monica, and he spent time with Josiah Citrin at Melisse, and was exec chef at Minibar.

WEST HOLLYWOOD: From The Guide: "La Cienega Boulevard's Coronet Pub, a longtime haunt of aspiring actors in L.A., will close this month. Owners will instead focus on their other bar nearby, St. Nick's on 3rd Street (at La Cienega). The adjacent Coronet theater remains open." [The Guide/LAT]
WEST HOLLYWOOD: And just a little mystery from a tipster: "There is a new restaurant going in on 3rd and Crescent Heights, the SouthEast Corner, where the old Splash was." That's really all we have so far. Anyone else? [EaterWire Inbox]
