A nearly 60 year veteran gone from Downtown

Yorkshire Grill

A tipster writes in to say that longtime lunchtime spot Yorkshire Grill has shut down in Downtown. The humble lunch counter served the community and office workers for nearly 60 years with a steady dose of greasy spoon classics. There's no information about what's going to happen next with the space.

A ground floor restaurant in an iconic Echo Park building

Elysian Restaurant

LA Weekly's new food editor Garrett Snyder (who's actually returned to the post after a few years hiatus) has a few choice details on Winsome, which is headed to the ground floor of the iconic Elysian building in Echo Park. Construction has broken ground and the 75-seat all day restaurant will tout Jeremy Strubel (Rustic Canyon) as its chef, plus Leslie Mialma (Republique) at the pastry front. As for fare, think "New California," which means al pastor root vegetables and matcha-flavored Mexican sweet breads for pastries. The interior design will give it a heavy local feel, with a mural of a classic 1938 watercolor by Echo Park artist Phil Dike inside.

Take home a piece of Downtown history

The Hotel Figueroa is doing a massive liquidation sale on Thursday, which means if you want to take home some interior bits from iconic hotel, you'll have between December 3 to 31. The 1925 hotel has a heavy Moroccan look with Spanish Colonial accents. A renovation is scheduled for summer 2016.

Vegan donuts headed to Silver Lake

Donut Farm

A mysterious new donut shop called Donut Farm is slated for a strip mall in Silver Lake. A small note on the corner indicates that it will be a vegan donut shop, so anyone hankering for a maple bacon long john will have to look elsewhere. The place seems to be in construction at the moment, so no word on projected opening.
