Let's talk about Pane e Vino, or, rather, Sirena, 8265 Beverly Blvd's next Spacecraft-designed incarnation. Pretty much exactly as speculated, partner Sandy Gendel of Pace fame PLUS Michael Sutton of the defunct Guys & Dolls nightclub plan to open a traditional Italian restaurant with California influences. The kitchen will churn out olive oil-based dishes prepared with local and organic ingredients, wild-caught fish, and grass-fed meats.
As for the space, in the dining room, between the kitchen and bar, one will find a raw bar. Meanwhile, Gendel hired Alan Scott of ovencrafters to construct a fancypants wood-burning oven which will be used to bake bread and pizza. Right now the plan is to serve lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, hopefully by mid-February.
