New, 4 comments

SHERMAN OAKS— Potential good news for The Valley. Guess who snagged Smiles Nightclub on Ventura right by the imminent One Up? Beer man Ryan Sweeney plus partners Brandon Bradford and Alen Aivazian of The Blind Donkey and The Surly Goat. But also, interestingly enough, Dolce Group's Mike Malin is involved. No word on their concept. [EaterWire]

MARINA DEL REY— Chef Kevin Meehan of roving underground dinner club Kali Dining is cooking in cahoots with Cyril Kabaoglu of TriptikLA on September 8 and with Nyesha Arrington formerly of Wilshire on September 21. Dinner takes place at the Stella living complex and a five course communal dinner costs $65/head. BYOB as per usual. Resys here. [EaterWire]

AROUND TOWN— What is LA's most iconic dish? KCET has organized a competition, of sorts, via a series of heats, which pit classic LA meals up against each other. The final winning plate will be crowned LA's most iconic dish. See them all here. [KCET]
