2) Silver Lake: Several folks have submitted sightings regarding all kinds of activity—construction, workers, signage—at 2866 Rowena Avenue, off Hyperion. It's called Silver Take, and according to the website, will be a neighborhood kitchen/cafe specializing in Mediterranean dishes and the "best coffee in town." [PLYWOOD]
3) Laguna Hills: Stick a Fork In It brings word of a restaurant shuffle at work down in the OC. Next week, Woody's Diner will open its fifth SoCal location in the space that last housed Islands. [Stick a Fork In It]
4) Hollywood: Finally, a reader writes in with a plywood mystery: "Any one have word on the restaurant going up on melrose next to (Osteria) Mozza? It looks to be a smallish space and the only signage is for the contractors... I walked by this morning and they've installed a pizza (?!?!?) oven. Could Mozza be expanding to take out??? Or is someone really opening a pizza place next door to Mozza?" Update: ok calm down, it's the aforementioned Mozza takeout window, getting closer. [PLYWOOD]
