MARINA DEL REY— The Ritz-Carlton's restaurant in the Marina gets a makeover and reconcept, called Cast & Plow (a little agrarian for a swanky city hotel, isn't it?). Replacing the former Journey restaurant, the space has been gutted out and quietly opened last week. Cheffed by Umit Kaygusuz, the menu features farm-to-table cooking featuring dishes like local halibut, petaluma chicken, and hyper-local produce from places like Agoura Hills and Ontario. [ELA]

DISNEYLAND— Starbucks is opening an advanced company-store in Disneyland on March 10 with all the latest in cafe technology, from touch screen, LEED certification, and a living green wall with 1,000 living plants. [EaterWire]

AROUND TOWN— Local history buffs can guess what corner of the city that Curries Ice Cream shop once occupied in L.A. years ago. Mile high ice cream cones once cost a mere ten cents. [Curbed LA]
