Chef Jet Tila (Wazuzu at the Encore in Vegas) launches a new Bistronomics pop-up titled Lucky 13. He and chef Alex Ageneau (sous at The Royce) are set to take over Breadbar in Century City starting October 9 (Bistronomics will run Oct 9-10, 15-16, 21-22, 28-29) and may in fact overtake the West Hollywood outpost as well, but only once they obtain a liquor license. Preview the menu here.
As for a permanent Tila space, sources say he is looking at properties throughout LA and that this is definitely in the works. In fact, the chef may be gearing up to helm a more burgeoning empire, as Wynn Las Vegas has yet to name a replacement for him at Wazuzu and insiders are telling us that Tila could remain involved and that his name may stay on the menu. Breadbar is also open to him becoming a more permanent fixture as well.
