Another one gone

More sad news for Middle Eastern restaurant Jaffa. The group behind the restaurant has abruptly closed the West Third Street location, just weeks after shuttering the Palms outlet as well. A call in to the restaurant confirmed the closure yesterday.

End of an era

Le Petit Chateau is closing at the end of the year. The longtime French restaurant in North Hollywood will go out with a bang at the end of the month after celebrating more than forty years in business.

Get them any time

One of LA’s most prominent bagel pop-up spots, Pop’s Bagels, is now installed inside Colony ghost kitchen in West LA. That means diners can order their bagels on UberEats, or go in to the space directly to pick up and/or dine in.

A little more Ricardo

Ricardo Zarate is on to help the folks at Mama Lion in Koreatown. As the new “culinary partner,” Zarate is said to be overhauling the food side of the menu for the clubby spot on Western.

Go support the good ones

A family member’s earnest tweet about a new Downtown LA cafe has gone lightly viral this month, urging folks to go check out Bohemian House of Chai as a way to help keep the new family restaurant in business.

Switching sides

One of the big names from the NoMad team, Leo Robischek, has jumped ship and is now heading up the food and drink programs for the Sydell group, reports Eater NY.

Rock out in Hollywood

A new Hollywood hotspot called the Bourbon Room is opening on Thursday from Andy Paxson and Dave Gibbs, the folks behind Sushi Note and Augustine Wine Bar. Chef Kelsey Salamon is on to oversee the comfort bar food with dishes like burgers, a hot dog, and pizza, while cocktails and live music otherwise remain the focus. 6356 Hollywood Boulevard at Rock of Ages; open daily until 2 a.m.
