Earlier this month, news spread that chef Eric Park would be transitioning his popular Silver Lake neighborhood dinner spot Black Hogg into another outlet of his growing Ohana Poké Co. brand. It’s a tough loss for the area, considering Black Hogg’s populist menu and reasonably-priced wine list, but alas there are other great neighborhood options nearby.
It seems that now the time has come to welcome Ohana Poké to the neighborhood, except, well, Park isn’t calling it that anymore: this one is going to be Ohana Seafood Co., owing to a larger mix of fish-forward dishes beyond the simple Hawaiian snack. Unlike Downtown’ Ohana, which took over Park’s Hero Shop but lacked much of the conventional stuff you’d find in a restaurant kitchen, the former Black Hogg space is fully kitted out, so the plan is to offer options like coconut clams and fresh takes on dishes like shrimp scampi. An opening menu is attached below.
What’s more: Park is actually bisecting the former dining room of the Silver Lake space, in order to keep some room for his popular lunch-only sandwich pop-up Soppressata. That means, during the day at least, the two will run concurrently, separated loosely by a sort of scrim right down the middle of the room. Otherwise, it’s all the same.
Ohana Seafood Co. soft-opens today with Tuesday through Saturday hours from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
