You know we loves us some tips for the EaterWire. Drop any and all here.
DOWNTOWN: Last we spied this Craigslist ad looking for an exec chef for Coles downtown, which means the Cedd Moses-updated landmark resto should be reopening soon, right? Wrong. Chef Neal Fraser, consulting on the project, told us at GOF last week that it will probably be Septemberish. Also in the ad, French dip smack talk: "We are going to have the best beef dip sandwich is town." (Photo: Flickr) [EaterWire]
SILVER LAKE: Also spotted in Craigslist: "I have a small grab-and-go cafe in Silverlake and am looking for someone to takeover the lease and space. I currently share the space with a retail gift shop. The ideal business would be a juice bar given the current set up." What is this and where? [EaterWire]
MID-CITY: An odd occurrence at the Kiwiberri frozen yogurt shop in the strip mall at 3rd and La Cienega: It is now called Kiwibear. This Kiwiberri closed for a Food Network makeover show, and Kiwibear is the best they could come up with? Another Kiwiberri turned into something called Swirls in Claremont. Of course, all of this probably has to do with the lawsuit Pinkberry pinned on Kiwiberri for copyright infringement. Pinkberry (thrusting fists in air)! [B&S; EaterWire]
