EL SEGUNDO—Glad tidings for a Plywood vet. Emails a tipster, "Well, the first southern California location for Paul Fleming's newest operation, Paul Martin's American Bistro, just had its liquor license activated and is thus legally allowed to open in El Segundo, across the street from Manhattan Beach on the Rosecrans corridor east of Sepulveda. First one is in Roseville, in the suburban area of Sacramento." Here's the official website, which touts a "mid-February" open. [EaterWire Inbox]

We are casting NOW, for shows that will tape in Los Angeles during the week of March 16-20th." For those with particularly low self-esteem, more details here. [Eater Comments]
