VEGAS, BABY— Eater National reports that French uber chef Pierre Gagnaire will open his first US restaurant December 4 in Vegas, and he's not at all worried about the economy: "No, no, no. Never because I am more worried that my sauce doesn’t work, not that the restaurant won’t work. It (Twist) will be a stunning place." [Eater National]

DOWNEY— Today marked the grand opening of a new Bob's Big Boy which took over the former iconic Johnie's Broiler in Downey. In 2002 the inside of Johnie's was gutted sans permits but the eatery has now been revamped to its original 1950s splendor. [EaterWire]
