As reported earlier, owner Jessica Koslow tells Eater that SQIRL will be closing for about eleven days starting August 5 and will reopen on August 16 after expanding the space, adding twenty seats, new floors, and marble tabletops. In addition, LOU Wine & Provisions will also be opening to the public, offering a range of market items like bread, cheese, charcuterie, pickles and preserves, as well as Lou Amdur's selection "democratically priced wine," between $12-20, with nothing over $25. They both should be nice feathers in the cap for the neighborhood.
In the meantime, SQIRL will be signing off this weekend with an extensive menu of things like house-made raw milk burrata with mission fig terrine, Santa Barbara seabass with smoked eggplant caponata, and beef tongue tacos. When the eatery reopens on the 16th, they'll put on a CONFIT week, with a new item offered each day.
