Vegan no more

Hollywood vegan hit Doomie’s made a big push into Culver City this year with a sprawling corner location, but now it seems the added address will be short-lived. Ownership notified customers of Culver City’s upcoming closer on Facebook, saying “It has certainly been a hard road to travel; from city hall red tape and permit hurdles to unforeseen renovations and missed opportunities.” The final day of service is December 30. Meanwhile, the company retains its locations in Hollywood and City Terrace. The address at 9900 Culver Blvd. has struggled to attract lasting restaurants, including recent failures like Ramen Roll.

An easy kind of party

Pacifique West Hollywood is hosting a big New Years Eve party, and best of all there’s no cover charge, no pre-set menu, and a live DJ with complimentary midnight toast.

And then the Pez version

And then there’s Pez Cantina in Downtown, which is throwing it back to the ‘90s with a themed countdown party, bottle service, and a full tequila lounge area.

The brand is strong

Sushi Stop is adding a new location, having landed some prime real estate at the Burbank Collection, directly across from the movie theater.

The next Peruvian sensation

Pablito’s Peruvian Tacos is going into a brick and mortar Burbank location, reports the LA Times, doing its usual menu of carne asada, quesatacos, lomo saltado tacos, and more.

Adding something new to the conversation

The team behind All Time in Los Feliz is adding a takeaway space a few doors down. The space, aptly titled Part Time, will be open seven days a week at 2044 Hillhurst Avenue, doing things like rotisserie chicken, brisket, porchetta, vegetarian mains, and sides galor. Look for an opening in the new year.
