Tiki-Ti's 50th Bday Party, Square One Expands, MORE!

HOLLYWOOD— Yikes, the wacky Polynesian-inspired Tiki-Ti is gearing up for its 50th birthday. From 4-10PM the Flatiron Truck will be parked outside the bar serving its signature menu plus a couple Tahitian-inspired creations: Poisson Cru and free coconut cupcakes for the first 300 guests. Obviously Tiki-Ti will serve its classic tropical bevys. [EaterWire]

MANHATTAN BEACH—Grub Street reports that Sharkeez sports bar, with a slew of locations spread through SoCal, will open its next iteration in Manhattan Beach on Thursday. [Grub Street]

SILVER LAKE— Also in expansion mode, Square One. Proprietors of the popular breakfast spot, in conjunction with John Himelstein of Gingergrass, intend to launch Square One Tavern in the shutted SiLa Bistro space. The restaurant is slated to debut late summer/early fall serving dinner during the week and brunch on weekends. [The Feast]

HOLLYWOOD— Hugh Garvey of Bon Appetit files an early report on Jason Neroni's craftings at Osteria La Buca. After a second visit to the recently remodeled restaurant he's a big fan of the Porchetta with Cannellini Beans and Spring Onion Agrodolce. Garvey also comments on Neroni's veg-pig skills, "Neroni's got a measured, porcine-way with vegetables, too: Roasted Carrots with Yogurt and Maple are topped with lardo--smoked (as if lardo needed any help). And amazingly it can get even more delicious. For cooking like this, I'm hoping Neroni sticks around." [BA]
