Silver Lake burger restaurant Hache is closing after five years. The Sunset Boulevard eatery will close its doors for good as of this coming Sunday, with ownership saying: “We really appreciate everyone who came through our patio and who hung with us through the good, the bad, and the yummy times.” The land is rumored to be slated for redevelopment.
Food & Wine takes a look at five great big Los Angeles restaurant openings for this summer, starting with Tacos 1986 and winding through Bon Temps, Birdie G’s, Antico, and Pizzana in West Hollywood.
Things are coming along at Pasjoli, Dialogue chef Dave Beran’s upcoming Santa Monica French restaurant. It looks like he’s still targeting an opening sometime in late summer, too.
