New, 4 comments

MID-CITY—As noted by Daily Candy and B+S, Steven Arroyo's Potato Chips is open today. Arroyo decided to change the Bicentennial 13 wine shop to a sandwich shop back in November, and the name derives from an antique sign that he happened to like (pictured here via Blackburn + Sweetzer). 7613 Beverly Boulevard; (323) 931-4995 [DC/BS]

WEHO—The Dish reports that a pair of fast casual eateries are coming to a new mixed-use development on Sunset: a Japanese restaurant by the name of SanSai and "soup/sandwich/salad emporium" Fresh Bites." Both are slated for the second half of 2009. [DD]

BEARDWIRE—The James Beard Awards are in full swing, and right this moment, Eater NY is liveblogging the entire ceremony.
