Saying goodbye

It looks like Monsieur Marcel has closed in Santa Monica. A tipster writes in to say the Third Street Promenade spot officially called it quits over the long weekend, with little to no advanced notice — a fact confirmed with a phone call to the Original Farmers Market location. Monsieur Marcel also maintains a takeaway location at LAX as well.

No more Joe

Joe Sasto has stepped out from his post at Cal Mare inside the Beverly Center. The Top Chef alum will be traveling and hosting pop-ups for the rest of the year, but tells Eater that he eventually wants to open his own place.

Slice life

All locations of D’Amore’s Pizza will apparently be celebrating one of America’s endless pizza-themed faux-holidays. That’s good news for diners though, as it means $2 cheese slices and half-off full cheese pizzas at all locations.

Mister fans

Mister O’s is already getting plenty of attention in Studio City. The restaurant only officially opened last night, but is already headlining a new Food & Wine piece calling the place one of LA’s “most promising new restaurants.”

The future

Several Los Angeles food luminaries took to NPR to discuss the future of restaurant criticism in a post-Jonathan Gold world, and to hash out just what LA’s next big writer needs to take into consideration with the city they cover.

Chinatown noodles

LA Magazine is the latest publication to fawn over the new Okiboru in Chinatown. The upstart ramen shop is already gaining a reputation for its daily housemade noodles, but writer Jean Trinh advises not to skip on the chashu-seasoned pork ribs, either.

Lunch date

Night + Market Sahm is now officially doing lunch, launching a new menu of daytime options that can only be found at the venice location. Hours run Wednesday through Friday from noon to 3 p.m., and dinnertime reservations can officially now be made through Resy as well.
