AKA A Bistro Coming to Pas, Restaurant 2117 Adds Coffee Cafe, Camarena Taco Truck Freebies

PASADENA— Pasadena Scoop brings word that St.Helena's Michelin recommended AKA A Bistro will open a SoCal location in the former Gordon Biersch space. The addition isn't as random as it may seem, proprietor Robert Simon owns Bistro 45 also in Pas. [Pasadena Scoop]

WEST LA— Chef Hideyo Mitsuno of Restaurant 2117 on Sawtelle has been getting into coffee over the past few months inspired by a friend in Japan who was roasting small lots of beans in a pan on top of a charcoal fire. He began to play around with this method and decided to turn part of his restaurant to a coffeehouse called 2117 Coffee Café. The cafe took over the crepe stand that once rented out the front space.
