Pop’s Bagels on the rise
Ongoing pop-up Pop’s Bagels has secured a new semi-permanent space at the Platform development in Culver City, taking over the former Sao Açai. They’ll be there for at least the next six months starting tomorrow, keeping hours from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday through Sunday to start. Expect expanded days/hours and a bigger lunch menu down the line, too.
Doing good work
Bluestone Lane is donating profits from all of its cafes today and Friday to bushfire relief in Australia.
Coming right along
Here’s what Johnny’s Pastrami (which has apparently dropped the G) will look like when it opens soon in West Adams.
Gone and gone
My Little Dumpling has closed on West Third Street after less than one year.
As well as...
So too has A Basq Kitchen closed in Redondo Beach, ending a four-and-a-half year run doing paella and other Spanish specialities. A new restaurant called the Front Porch is taking over.
Ice cream for a cause
Margarita Kallas-Lee from the Scratch Restaurants empire is teaming up with Wanderlust Creamery for a one-off triple creme cheese flavor this month at the Atwater Village and Tarzana locations. Proceeds will go to Project Angel Food.
A great win
Forget In-N-Out after the awards, this year the post-Golden Globes move for Parasite director Bong Joon-ho was none other than BCD Tofu House.
