MID-CITY— A little action shot of Marcona sandwich shop scoring its exterior sign from about an hour or so ago. Still on tap to open next month. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN— Amanda Baumgarten, the Top Chef alum chef who stepped up to replaced longtime Water Grill chef David LeFevre earlier this year, has departed the restaurant. No news on her plans as of yet. [EaterWire]

VENICE— So, remember how Roy Choi (Kogi) signed on to re-conceptualize Beechwood and launch an Indian eatery? Apparently that idea has been scratched. He is instead going to open a Jamaican street food concept and he tried out some dishes on Monday night at the Test Kitchen anniversary dinner at Picca. [EaterWire]

MID-CITY— A commenter suggested that the new meatball shop potentially opening on 3rd Street might be helmed by the Great Balls on Tires crew. However, this is not the case. While they ARE expanding, they do not have a space lined up over here. So... WHO is hitting the nabe? [EaterWire]

VENICE— Urban Daddy reports that Barlo, the new restaurant which replaced Hash in the Hotel Erwin, is now soft open. There's a whole lot of bacon caramel action going on from popcorn to burger inside this revamped industrial minimalist scene. Curious. [Urban Daddy]
