PACIFIC PALISADES— Santa Monica's Chez Mimi closed on June 13, 2010 after over a decade of business, however owner Micheline Hebert ("Mimi") vowed to reopen in a new location. Word on the street is that Herbert is in talks to purchase Mogan's Cafe on Palisades Drive for a second go. [EaterWire]

SANTA MONICA— It's official. Escrow has closed on Ushuaia Argentinean Steakhouse's takeover of the defunct Drago space. This is a new eatery from those behind Malbec in Pasadena and Toluca Lake. [EaterWire]

WEST LA— After decades of serving just beer and wine, Pico Blvd's Talpa Mexican restaurant has received a full 47. [EaterWire]

OC— Holy cats. Jinya is at it again. The now mini chain with ramen and robata eateries in Studio City, Mid-City, and Sawtelle to come (per The Facebook: "we do our best to open asap!!") is also headed to Costa Mesa near the intersection of Harbor and Baker at 1450 Baker Street. [EaterWire]
