The Catch Debuts Tonight, Elf Cafe Expands, Philippe Adds New Menu Items, MORE!

OC— For the third opening alert of the day, The Catch, an Anaheim landmark for more than 32 years, reopens tonight at its new location just a homerun hit away from Angel’s Stadium on the corner of Sportstown Drive and Katella Avenue. The restaurant held a press preview Wednesday which showcased the new athletic-themed space, as well as the seafood-dominated menu created by Culinary Director Tom Hope. Look for dishes like marinated lobster on homemade potato chips, Costa Rican-style ceviche, and ahi tuna sashimi served on mango slices. [EaterWire]

ECHO PARK— Scott Zwiezen, owner of vegetarian hotspot Elf Cafe, divulges expansion plans to The Huffington Post. Specifically, he will install a full service kitchen in the existing eatery and take over the space next door. [HuffPo]

WEHO— Philippe has expanded its menu to include six "healthier" steamed dishes. New options include a dumpling sampler, chicken and broccoli, Chilean sea bass served with black bean and garlic sauces, steamed whole fish with scallions & ginger, live Maine lobster with fresh ginger, scallions and cracked black pepper, as well as a seasonal vegetable platter, available with tofu.

GOOD DEEDS— If you're planning on buying V-day flowers, consider going through Taste of the Nation and you'll also be helping to end childhood hunger. That's right, Taste of the Nation: Los Angeles is partnering up with Dandelion Ranch, a local "floral couturier" for a special Valentine's day promo. A portion of the proceeds from each Dandelion Ranch bouquet will benefit Share Our Strength. Two ways to play: Call Dandelion directly and say "Valentine's Day promotion." Or, go to a participating restaurant and, when you make your V-day reservation, ask to get flowers delivered tableside (mention "Share Our Strength"). Bonus: Score points with your significant other. Participating restaurants include: Ford's Filling Station, Lily's, Roy's Downtown, FIG, Jiraffe, Lucques, Tavern and AOC. Check the Taste of the Nation website for details/updates. [EaterWire] —YI
