Culinary Lab, the group behind places like Hinoki & the Bird, Rosaline, and Blackship, is back with a big new project right in the heart of Hollywood. The upcoming Italian spot is to be called Soprano, and it’s about to gobble up a full 7,000 square feet right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Soprano takes over for a prominently-placed former sports bar at Hollywood and Vine, just steps from the Pantages and APL. Construction has been going on inside for a little while, and the plan is to open the Italian spot in a matter of weeks.

Reps for the restaurant note that Soprano will operate more as an old school Hollywood hangout kind of Italian destination, rather than a more modern regional Italian specialist like, say, Rossoblu or Felix. Chef Brandon Kida from Hinoki & the Bird is on to oversee the menu, after having previously opened up the rooftop hotspot Sorra nearby in Hollywood. beyond the pastas, meatballs, and all that red sauce, expect a focus on cocktails, throwback dinner service, and wine.

Soprano. 6263 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA.
