Welcome back to the Dish Report, our regular nod to all things new. See something debut that we missed? Just let us know.
1) Studio City: A new Mediterranean joint called Mantee (named after the restaurant's signature Armenian dish: oven-baked ravioli covered in garlic yogurt sauce) comes to Venture Blvd. and officially opens today. Per the press release, "Mantee is a sister site to Al-Mayass, an award winning Armenian-Lebanese restaurant, which was recently featured in Food & Wine’s 2008 Go List." No complaints in the Lebanese food department as long as the food speak for itself. Also, make sure to check out the back garden for al fresco dining. 10962 Ventura Blvd.; 818-761-6565 [EaterWire]
2) Manhattan Beach: Tin Roof Bistro opened up as expected on July 27 and Food GPS was there for the scoop. Operated by trio Chris Simms, brother Mike, and chef Anne Conness, the restaurant features wine over beer, has a wood-burning pizza oven, and an outdoor garden dining option. 3500 N. Sepulveda Blvd.; website [Food GPS]
3) Westwood: About two weeks ago Falafel King in Westwood Village did a Sunnin-esque switcheroo, downgrading to the old South Street space. This time around same menu, smaller restaurant. 1010 Broxton Ave.; 310-208-4444 [EaterWire]
