WEST LA— When Chimu closed abruptly last October, Downtown lunchers lamented the loss of a standout Peruvian restaurant. At the time, chef Mario Alberto Orellana had decided to partner with Jason Michaud of Local to launch new eatery Red Hill in Echo Park, however since then any Facebook or Twitter posts regarding Orellana and his kitchen staff's involvement in Red Hill have been removed. Orellana was last seen working the line at Freddy Smalls Bar + Kitchen in West L.A. [EaterWire] — MK
