On the move
Chef Bryant Ng is launching a new “virtual” restaurant inside his Santa Monica restaurant Cassia. Per Food & Wine, the place is to be called Cassia Rice & Noodle Kitchen, and it will work a less expensive (and altogether unique) menu compared to out in the dining room, despite sharing the same kitchen. That means things like shrimp and pork wonton noodle soup, Chinese broccoli fried rice, and more. The food will be available on most delivery apps starting June 18.
Iron Triangle Brewing is for sale in the Arts District. The company, which started out with big plans to grow and expand, is now asking a neat $1.5 million for the brewing system, the taproom itself, and the remaining sub-market lease in one of the busiest real estate stretches in Los Angeles.
Rams can eat
Check out the crowd at busy Slab on West Third Street. The group shot below is almost all Rams players who came through on a bus this week to buy out all the meat in the entire place.
Dinnertime seafood chain Eddie V’s is reportedly heading for Manhattan Beach next year, landing in the former McCormick & Schmick’s at 2101 Rosecrans Avenue.
Another place to dine
There’s a new restaurant hiding in the shadow of the 405, right next to Brentwood. The Mediterranean restaurant is called Sirocco, and it opens June 17 inside the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel, just below the Getty Center.
And more and more
In addition to the upcoming Fuku in Santa Monica, the reformatted first floor of the Third Street Promenade’s Gallery Food Hall will also earn a few new restaurant tenants. There’s Adelaide for daytime coffee, Street Noods for a variety of noodles, and Cada Vez for spanish snacks and wine. All are expected to open mid-summer, with an almost immediate expansion to Las Vegas afterwards.
