Cafe Vida Fills in the Defunct Assembly in Culver City

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Though David Kuo's Assembly never got off the ground, the opportunistic Cafe Vida found a way to take over. Though reported last May that Vida was opening on Culver Blvd, ownership noticed a better building (plus a full liquor license) in the sadly never-completed restaurant. Right now construction workers are filling the interior while exterior landscaping gets a final touch. At least the effort to build out a prime restaurant space in Culver City didn't go completely to waste.

Cafe Vida, the budding healthy-gourmet chain, already has locations in Pacific Palisades and El Segundo, featuring Latin-influences dishes like grilled chicken jalapeno melts, breakfast burritos, burgers, and fresh-squeezed juices that are all the rage. No word yet on the opening date, though Vida's website does its best to ramp up the anticipation.
