Mar Vista, which just begs for better food concepts but can't seem to draw them, is landing a pretty awesome new rotisserie called Status Kuo, Founded by David Kuo and his wife, remember that he originally tried to develop something in the East Borough space (before American Gonzo and Paul Hibler took over the lease). Instead, the Kuos are taking over the old Le Petite Creperie spot.
Now Kuo, who went to cooking school and worked in various kitchens, including Jean Georges in New York City, is opening an all-day eatery for the people. Think something California Chicken Cafe, but more gourmet, with rotisserie chicken, suckling pig, porchetta, lamb, and prime rib. As if that wasn't enough, Kuo will eventually serve the likes of Chinese-style barbecue pork, Peking Duck, and octopus.
But it won't just be meats, Kuo plans to cater to vegetarians and vegans, with a slew of house-made flatbreads, salads, soups, and plenty of roasted veggies. Also, the interior is being done by Design, Bitches, so expect a rather cheerful, good-looking place to populate Mar Vista within the next few weeks.
