Even more Yarrow
Royce Burke’s Yarrow Cafe is landing as a pop-up inside the San Julian location of Cognoscenti Coffee this Saturday. The vegetable-focused (though by no means vegan) cafe is known for its breakfast burrito with griddled cheese on the outside of the tortilla, and for lots of combinations of Bub and Grandma’s bread, eggs, mushrooms, and other roasted vegetables. The plan is to do a one-day Saturday pop-up followed by another next weekend, and maybe, if all goes well, to expand into more regular food service at the Downtown Cognoscentis. The Saturday menu is below.
Up and running
The Fountain bar is up and running inside of Corporation Food Hall in Downtown. Now through Thursday, December 20, the ABC property is doing 25% off of everyone’s check.
As of yesterday, several Del Taco locations across Southern California have begun tinkering with the use of Beyond Meat, the meatless animal protein alternative meant to serve as a one-to-one replacement for ground beef. Per the Press-Telegram, Del Taco will offer vegetarian and vegan hard shelled taco options at outlets across Orange County, Riverside County, and in Culver City and Santa Monica.
Joe’s Pizza has opened in Sherman Oaks. The New York City slice spot came online this week, and is now doing daily hours starting at 11 a.m. on Ventura Boulevard.
West Third Street restaurant Goldie’s has closed, reports the LA Times. The Nick Mathers restaurant lasted for five years.
And another one
It seems that Backhouse in Koreatown has also closed. The sushi and yakitori spot on 6th Street quietly shuttered sometime this month, though the parent company (also the group behind EMC downstairs) says something else is coming soon in its place.
Openaire is doing a couple of New Years Eve menus at the Line Hotel in Koreatown. The Josiah Citrin spot is working a three-course and five-course menu at different times, depending on how long people want to linger over food before heading out to party. The menus are below.
