Hadaka Done, South on Sunset Taking Over

New, 3 comments

The website is still live, as is the outgoing phone message with business hours and reservation info, but the nail is definitely in the coffin for Hadaka Sushi. Tablehopper up north has news that the Aussies and Kiwis behind South Food + Wine Bar will be opening South on Sunset at 8226 Sunset Boulevard. Yes, the same location as Hadaka (not surprising since it was just on the real estate pages of Craigslist), and no relation to South in Santa Monica. We like the enthusiasm the NoCal blogger shows---"They have primo real estate, just opposite the Chateau Marmont, with 140 seats, a full bar, and the L.A.-de rigueur outdoor patio"---but any local knows that spot has had its issues, Marmont, patio and all. Plus, the Sunset Strip crowd can be brutally fickle. But let them have a go, no? The chef hails from Sydney (Glass, another restaurant of chef/owner Luke Mangan) and the concept will be similar to the SF original. Permits pending, they want to open by the end of the year.
