It’s been a tough go for the former BLD space on Beverly Boulevard of late, but now there’s some fresh blood inside ready to make the building work. Jeremy Fall, previously of Nighthawk, Easy’s, Tinfoil Liquor, and other projects, has emerged from the construction to work up a casual dinnertime spot filled with art, music, and more.
Stanchions are up now at the corner restaurant, and activity has been brisk inside for the better part of the past two weeks. Eater was able to confirm Fall’s involvement with the address, and that the new restaurant will be called Mixtape. As the name suggests, Fall tells Eater that “the menu is inspired by my multi-cultural background, mixing in old family recipes with elevated takes on dishes that I remember eating growing up.” While Fall himself won’t be in the kitchen, he is overseeing the menu as well as the art and music for the place.
There’s no current timetable for Mixtape’s opening, though it should be noted that a ton of work was just recently done inside when the restaurant space previously flipped to become a chicken and whiskey joint known as Rye Fox (it only lasted a few months). Once complete, Fall says the plan is to stay open late with food and cocktails out on the patio.
