New, 2 comments

1) Hollywood: Currently in its soft opened phase comes Marbella, a Spanish themed club which has taken over the old Montmarte Cafe space. Check the site to preview the mediterranean- inspired design that includes a 4,000 square foot patio, plush chairs and couches, wrought iron embellishments, and a series of cabanas for that requisite bottle service. Stay turned for Marbella's Spanish tapas restaurant slated to open shortly. 6757 Hollywood Boulevard; 323-465-0447; website

2) Downtown: After a 15-year contract with Patina Restaurant Group came to an end, Alan Jackson, owner of the Lemonade cafeteria-style eateries around town decided to take over the space. He recently opened Lemonade in Venice and today, just over a month later, he has opened, Lemonade at MOCA. The newest branch occupies 1,000 square feet of interior and exterior space on the ground level of MOCA. Look for the expected assortment of flavored lemonades and prepared foods. 250 South Grand Ave; 213-628-0200; website

3) Manhattan Beach: After quite a delay, Mr.Cecil's third outpost of California-style bbq ribs opened yesterday on Highland Ave. The ribery took a space formerly occupied by La Creperie Café, and this new location boasts a 60-seat dining room plus bar. 1209 Highland Ave; 310-546-5400; website
