More Westside ice cream

Wanderlust Creamery is next for the Westside, opening up along bustling Lincoln Boulevard. The colorful scoop spot will take over the former Juice Served Here space at 609 Lincoln Boulevard, with a planned opening sometime this spring.

The arrival of Wanderlust comes on the heels of the opening of Night + Market Sahm down the street, and shows the strength of Lincoln Boulevard as a destination for drinking and dining. With skyrocketing rents along slower streets like Abbot Kinney, many are looking to Lincoln to make their Venice dreams come true — or to rehab existing dives for a whole new generation.

EMC Seafood again

There’s even more seafood coming to the South Bay, with the upcoming opening of EMC Seafood & Raw Bar. Toddrickallen points out the inbound opening at the Del Amo Fashion Center.

Everson Royce wins

A new list of America’s best bars put out by the Chicago Tribune has Everson Royce Bar cracking the top ten, and the team couldn’t be happier.

Ebaes expands

Local Asian fusion spot Ebaes has expanded from its initial digs on Union Avenue up to Wilshire Boulevard, right next door to Plan Check. Expect everything from noodles to sushi to curry to Korean beef bowls.

Food truck problems

The Los Feliz Ledger is looking into one neighborhood’s food truck pop-up nights, saying they’re good for consumers but can be frustrating for locals who live nearby. That’s to say nothing of the brick and mortar restaurants nearby, who claim to be losing business as a result of these mobile vendors.

Keeping it quiet

Zagat has a list of under-the-radar chefs around Los Angeles that are worth remembering. It’s a comprehensive collection, from Chris Flint at the NoMad LA to Russell Victorioso, chef de cuisine at The Mighty.

Mezcalero returns

Downtown’s Mezcalero is back, following a grand reopening party a few days back. The Mexican pub spot is now turning out cocktails and tacos galore.
