Eagle Rock arrival

Penny Oven is now open in Eagle Rock. The casual bakery and cafe comes by way of the same folks as nearby Piencone Pizzeria, and features a variety of all-day options from coffee and sweets to sandwiches, salads, toasts, and beyond. As of now, hours are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

Wine and dinner

The Blending Lab is doing a fun dinner with Colectivo Felix on Thursday, June 13. The South American pop-up is pairing wines with dishes like skirt steak and mole, or a mushroom tamal, for $150.


Here’s a simple message from the folks at Prime Pizza: Order direct, instead of getting bitten by fees from delivery apps that also cut into the revenue for small businesses. On a related note, Little Tokyo’s location of Prime Pizza is now doing happy hour deals including $2 cheese slices daily from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (and again 10 p.m. to close), and $12 pitchers of beer.

LA Magazine has more information on Gabriela Camara of Mexico City’s Contramar, who is partnering up with Jessica Koslow of Sqirl to open a Santa Monica stunner of a restaurant soon called Onda.

Ghost movie

The new documentary film Ghost Fleet, which tackles the slavery found within the Thai fishing industry, is screening at the Arena Cinelounge in Hollywood tomorrow night. The showing is being put on by the team at Now Serving, and tickets run $20.

Showing no age

Congrats to Toscana, which is turning 30 years old out in Brentwood. To celebrate, the restaurant and bar is flashing back to its original menu all next week.
