Local coffee favorite Go Get Em Tiger is on the prowl again, this time picking up a smallish space in the thick of the Arts District. They’ll be taking up some real estate right on Third Street, in the middle of what may be the neighborhood’s densest restaurant corridor.
Go Get Em is heading into the shuttered Di Alba space, next door to Salt & Straw and around the corner from more than half-a-dozen other places. Directly across the street was, until rather recently, the popular Blacktop Coffee, though that minuscule space shuttered suddenly last month. Now the block is all Go Get Em’s for the taking, and as if on cue they’ve begun to give the space a bit of a facelift. Since Di Abla only just came (and went quickly), the turnaround should be mostly cosmetic.
This stretch of the Arts District has perhaps been the most inundated with eateries in recent years, from the new Inko Nito robata spot to Manuela — which just switched to chef Kris Tominaga — to an incoming outpost of Father’s Office. Top Chef’s own Mei Lin is landing soon with her project Nightshade, and there’s still a ton of longstanding stuff on the other side like Wurstkuche and the original Pie Hole.
Expect an opening this summer for Go Get Em Tiger in the Arts District. Meanwhile, the growing group (with existing outlets in Larchmont and Los Feliz, plus G&B Coffee at Grand Central Market) also have leases on properties in Highland Park and at the ROW.
