The folks behind swanky Eagle Rock dinner spot Red Herring are pulling the plug (for now) on their Colorado Boulevard restaurant next month, as they plan to focus their time, money, and staff on the upcoming opening of a new location in Downtown, which should open next to the Whole Foods later this year. Ownership sends along the following note:
Don’t fret, pets, but March 3rd brunch will be our last service - TEMPORARILY! We are going dark for a few months in order to get prepped for the opening of our second fabulous location in the heart of Downtown LA. We love love love you all and have had a genuinely life changing experience here in Eagle Rock; trust that you’ll be seeing us again very soon.
