No more sumo

Sumo Dog is officially closing its doors in Santa Monica on June 5. The Gallery Food Hall standalone space will have its last day of business this Wednesday, with no word yet on where to find them in the future, though ownership says there’s more to come on that front down the line.

Kosher in the community

A new kosher restaurant option arrived on Pico late last week. The spot is called Mamilla, and per the blog Yeah That’s Kosher the lounge-y spot will focus on Mediterranean and Israeli flavors, mostly.

Pasta dreams

Pasta Sisters in Culver City is starting a new aperitivo hour, with $7 drinks, $8 bites, and more.

Empowered kitchens
