Sunday is the last day of service at the Daily Dose, but owner Sarkis Vartanian isn’t moving out of Downtown. Vartanian plans to shut down the eight-year-old restaurant for a few weeks, and reopen on July 10 with a new restaurant.

The Daily Dose opened in 2010, and has one LA’s nicest alleys for outdoor dining. Filled with brick and ivy, Vartanian’s new eatery will have an entirely different name, new menu, and a refurbished outdoor area. The casual daytime eatery was popular for its morning coffee, healthy smoothies, and vegetarian-friendly Farmer Sandwich, which Vartanian loaded up with cheese, sweet potatoes, and whatever was in season.

In a statement, Vartanian says further:

“It’s been a great run. After seven fantastic years with Daily Dose, I hit that itch, and with all the great new development in the Arts District, I decided it was time to change things up, and create something new in our iconic alleyway. I am so honored and feel very blessed to have become part of our cozy community which defines this place. We’ve made a lot of great friends along the way, and I want to be able to give them something new and more befitting of the times, and I’m really looking forward to sharing our new place with them soon!”
