Ramen on the block

Ramen Tatsunoya has opened in Silver Lake this week. The casual Japanese option lands on Sunset Boulevard with limited hours for now, so expect some lunch (noon to 2 p.m. or so) and dinner service (6 p.m. to 8 p.m. or thereabouts) for now as the team continues to ramp up. A more fully realized opening is slated for March 8, and will coincide with a full menu reveal that includes not only a variety of ramen but appetizers like California rolls, chashu-stuffed peppers, and takoyaki.

Turning bad

Protesters have begun to target the Wurstkuche in Venice over co-owner Tyler Wilson’s decision to evict some rent-controlled tenants from a home he just bought in the neighborhood. The Ellis Act eviction means one less home on the rental market in the already-strapped Westside, and a big question market about where current tenant Patricia Sanchez and her family will go, reports Curbed LA.

Here it is

Sweetgreen has arrived on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica. The salad chain started up its cozy new corner location a few days back, right at 1517 Montana Avenue.

Enter Brazil

LAist has a new list out now on where to find great Brazilian food around Los Angeles, from Brasil Kiss in Downtown to Moqueca in Thousand Oaks.

On the radio

The newest episode of the Tacocity podcast is up, and it’s a conversation with the folks from Gracias Señor, the popular Pacific Palisades food truck.

The start of it all

LA Times tracks the history of the city’s Tehrangeles neighborhood, a place where exiled Iranian expats could come together to talk, dine, and find community.

Wine on the line

Los Angeles County winemakers Byron Blatty have set up a tasting room of sorts right inside Good Measure in Atwater Village. The new setup allows the Byron Blatty team to pour their own locally-made wine within the restaurant, while still letting customers get dinner.
