Flipping the hours
Tartine Bianco is no longer doing dinner service. The casual daytime restaurant inside of the Manufactory at the Row will now operate for lunch daily until 2:30 p.m., with dinnertime traffic pushed over to adjacent restaurant Alameda Supper Club instead.
Drinking once again
The closed Khong Ten on Pico Boulevard in West LA is getting new life. The restaurant is flipping to a spot called Sorry Not Sorry, and will act as essentially a rose-focused wine bar, complete with a frozen rose machine and bar snacks from Khong Ten chef Kim Vu. The restaurant opens on Friday.
One to know about
There’s a new speakeasy lounge and cocktail bar hidden inside of the House of Machines in the Arts District. The place is called John Thomas and Sons, and it’s only open Thursday through Saturday, beginning at 6 p.m.

The new celeb spot
The Hollywood Reporter checked in on semi-exclusive dinner spot Mason in Santa Monica last month, calling it a “clubby new eatery” while rattling off some of the big-name celebs that have already come through, including Courtney Cox and Rihanna, of course.
All in the name of Comfort
ABC7 went down to Inglewood to catch the second location of Comfort L.A. in action. The standalone restaurant aims to make healthier soul food choices without skipping out on the basics like greens, mac and cheese, and wings.
Healthy-leaning restaurant Flower Child is launching a new online ordering and loyalty app. The national chain, with locations in Santa Monica and Newport Beach, drops the app today, and is giving away $10,000 to help celebrate: $5,000 to one random downloader, and $5,000 to Alex’s Lemonade.
Follow the moon
Chinatown’s new tea and snack spot Steep is throwing a Moon Festival party on Friday. The 6 p.m. event leaves time to mingle, dine, and sip lots of tea alongside classic mooncakes.
