New, 6 comments

WEHO— Looks like Winston's is up for grabs per the For Sale sign above. While the bar was open this past weekend, phone call attempts over the last two days have gone unanswered, which begs the question, is this a shutter or is the full biz up for sale? Insight welcome in the comments. [EaterWire]

PASADENA— Brigham Yen shares renderings for Urth Caffe opening in the Playhouse District. Though still a ways away, devotees will be able to get their panini on in late 2011. [PREwBY]

BEVERLY HILLS— Geez louise, talk about a story. LAW divulges a case of mistaken identity involving Satoshi Kiyokawa, chef and owner of Kiyokawa (a J.Gold fave) and a bunch of robbers. Basically, the bad guys stole Kiyokawa's license plate and then proceeded to rob several fast food restaurants. On Dec 30 the police showed up at Kiyokawa on Robertson, arrested the sushi chef, and threw him in jail for three days. Not fun. [LAW]
