EaterWire: Rustic Canyon and Providence Toques Team Up, Victor's Holds Out, JBF Event Discount

HOLLYWOOD: We hear from our Bronson Canyon spy: "The deli portion of Victor's Liquor & Deli closed at the end of March, but the liquor store is still open through April as long as the merchandise holds out. Some good deals on Spiegelau wares. Owner says there's already something planned for the space that will be 'food and wine oriented', but not a wine bar since Victor's Restaurant already has one. He's confident that 'the neighborhood will embrace' this mysterious newcomer. Fingers crossed." [EaterWire Inbox]

SOMEWHERE: We dished that Samir Mohajer would leave Rustic Canyon this month, and now we hear he and former Providence chef de cuisine Paul Shoemaker are teaming up to open their own place. No word on concept, timeline or location yet, but the seed has been planted. Shoemaker, who opened Providence with Michael Cimarusti and Donato Poto, left the restaurant in late 2007.

WEST HOLLYWOOD: Tickets are pricey for the big fancy James Beard Foundation Chefs & Champagn event on May 4, but if it's any consolation, MOCA members receive the JBF member price of $195 for general admission or $325 for VIP premium admission (a $75 savings). [EaterWire Inbox]
