Dune in Downtown

Downtown’s Dune is closed for the month. The sleepy South Park restaurant suddenly shuttered without so much as a peep, but ownership says they’re simply taking the time to make some much-needed upgrades to the place, and will be back by the end of June. Meanwhile, Dune’s other locations in Venice and Atwater Village are alive and well.

Orange County news

Orange County’s Lido Marina Village is getting a new tenant. It’s called Circle Hook, and will be a seafood-focused venture from the Bear Flag owner Thos Carson and a longtime fisherman friend. Expect an opening later this year.

Moo’s is back

The Moo’s Craft Barbecue team is back, following their shutdown at the hands of the health department. They’re showing up at Angry Horse Brewing in Montebello on Sunday.

Greenbar party

Downtown’s Greenbar Distillery is hosting an open house event on June 17. The event runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and will feature free tastings, prizes, and barbecue.

Wine and Thai

Winemaker Tony Coturri is showing up next Tuesday at Night + Market Song in Silver Lake. There are no official reservations needed, just show up and let the well-known California winemaker pour.

Kopan for the people

Kopan Ramen has opened in Northridge. This location features a more izakaya vibe, while some of the other Kopans (there are ten spread across Southern California) stick more closely to the noodle house aesthetic. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. 19500 Plummer St., Northridge.

Prime rib living

Lawry’s is doing a throwback deal to celebrate its 80-year anniversary. The beloved restaurant is doing dinner for two all month long for just $80, and that prime rib, sides (yes, including the spinning salad), dessert, and a champagne toast.
