EaterWire: New Chef at One, Akasha's Flip on TLC, Lido Grill Soft Opens

New, 1 comment

CULVER CITY: Per a tipster: "Akasha starts lunch next week. Was in there while they were shooting the final ep for her TLC show. Food was great, although I wish portions were bigger. Love her baked stuff." By the way, that TLC show is Flip That Restaurant and debuts on March 8 at 9pm. [EaterWire Inbox]

WEST HOLLYOOD: We got an email to reserve for a special pinot noir wine tasting at One Sunset, which is intriguing on its own (not the first place that comes to mind for multi-course wine dinners). More interesting is that the exec chef is now Jason Marcus. A quick Google tells us Marcus was the chef at Red Pearl Kitchen in San Diego. We're told opening chef Chris Ennis left in January.

MARINA DEL REY: (Or is it Venice?) A reader sends word about Lido Grill on Washington Boulevard: "They've used the last few weeks for their soft opening. Grand Opening is set for March 1. Chef/Owner Michel (French North African) has history in opening restaurants and clubs from Japan to Tunisia and isn't afraid to use a lot of flavor. Flamenco, Sevillianas and other Spanish dancing is featured on weekends." Some pics for your viewing pleasure on Yo Venice!. (417 Washington Blvd.) [EaterWire Inbox]
