It’s almost time for the arrival of All’Antico Vinaio, the famed Italian sandwich shop, to Los Angeles. The Florence restaurant is popping up at Mozza2Go from October 21 through October 27, doing lunch hours only from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (or until sellout). The menu will include several prosciutto options, a porchetta and ‘nduja cream sandwich, and a classic caprese, among others, with bread baked on-site by the Mozza team.
The folks behind El Tejano opened their new West Hollywood location last night on La Cienega. The former Inkwell / Spanish Kitchen space is now serving up a variety of Tex Mex specialities and cocktails.
Growing the team
Banh Oui has expanded its team, bringing in Amy Taylor (Gwen) to help oversee the baking and pastry side of things at the company’s new shop on Melrose. Expect an expansion into things like doughnuts, a more robust breakfast program, and lots of bread. The plan is to push Oui Bakery into its own thing, and even land a stand at the weekly Hollywood Farmers market.
