Silverton’s big move
Nancy Silverton is bringing back her grilled cheese sandwich, first made famous from her years at Campanile. It’s going on the late night menu over at Pizzeria Mozza Sunday through Wednesday and all day on Thursdays (10 p.m. to midnight), and the team from the buzzy Off the Menu app are helping with the launch. The first night for grilled cheese is Monday, March 18 at the bar only — but only for those with the Off the Menu app. On Thursday, March 21 Silverton and Burt Bakman from Slab will be doing a brisket grilled cheese collaboration at the bar to ring in the grilled cheese menu’s availability to the general public, starting at 9 p.m. and running until sellout.
The opening is here
Maury’s will open this weekend in Silver Lake. The long-awaited bagel shop started as a pop-up by Jason Kaplan, but now has a location all its own at 2829 Bellevue Avenue.
The next Silverlake Ramen has arrived, right in Downtown. Featuring a big, wide bar and tall ceilings, the space at 615 S. Spring St. is now ready to roll, having opened for first service last night.
