Big Fat Pita, SugarFISH, Athenea, Vibe Cafe, MORE!

Welcome back to Plywood Report where we track what's coming to our still-alive-and-kicking drinking and dining scene. Did we miss something? Please drop it in the tip jar. 1) Culver City: Is pita the trend? Over in Pas Pita Jungle is underway, meanwhile appearing within the Westfield Fox Hills Mall comes another similar concept, Big Fat Pita in the space that formerly housed Swiss Grill. [EaterWire]

2) Downtown: As evident above, construction continues at Nozawa's third outpost of SugarFISH. Rumor has it this spot should open with the next two weeks or so. [EaterWire]

3) Sherman Oaks: Just some photos documenting that Spazio-Athenea switcheroo. Minus the new signage, doesn't look incredibly different from its former self. [EaterWire]

4) Sherman Oaks: Down the block also in Sherman Oaks at Ventura and Kester comes Vibe Cafe. Check out the brick exterior, outdoor tables, has looked ready to open for some time now. [EaterWire]

5) West Hollywood: The former Murano space on Melrose was vacant for over a year, finally Grub Street spots some action. The new tenant, The Artichoke's Heart, should open in early 2011. [GS]

6) Mid-City: Tinga chef and owner Jerry Baker shares news that the TINY NARROW space next door has been leased to become a restaurant. [EaterWire]
