A gang of hospitality vets will speak to this subject at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo on August 13 at 1:45 p.m. Part of the discussion: Donato Poto of Providence, Paul Hibler of Pitfire Pizza, David LeFevre of MB Post, Casey Lane of The Tasting Kitchen, and Matt Erickson of SBE.

DOWNTOWN— It's been almost two years since an update on Leka, that supposed tapas concept under development at 6th and Flower. Brigham Yen checks in with owner Michael Kwan, also the guy behind the Wockano chain, and brings word that the eatery is about 95% complete and should launch next month. Since early construction, the restaurant concept has morphed to an American fusion menu, offering a little bit of everything from the dining landscape that defines Los Angeles. Asian, Latin, etc. [Brigham Yen]
