Boyle Heights staple food truck Mariscos Jalisco is going permanent with a location off La Cienega, starting this weekend. The announcement was made on social media last night, following a test run to the area between Sawyer and 18th, just north of the 10 freeway. The truck will run Friday through Sunday at that location from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., selling its signature ceviches, tostadas, and of course those famous crispy shrimp tacos.

Meanwhile, up in the Valley, Burbank is about to get a brand new Tacos 1986. Per Instagram, the Tijuana-style taco makers that started from a Hollywood stand are now putting finishing touches on a small space at 4005. W Riverside Drive, with a plan to open next month.

And in other news:

  • LAist is all over the harried restaurant reopening timeline of the last few weeks, calling the sudden announcement “like trying to cook a pot roast in a microwave.”
  • Long Beach’s bar and restaurant reopenings have been cautious for some, and full speed ahead for others, reports the Press-Telegram.
  • Speaking of: Long Beach has a new pizza, wine, and sandwich shop called Little Coyote to know. The restaurant is co-owned by Hatchet Hall’s Jonathan Strader, and it officially opens today at 2118 E. 4th Street.
  • Robertson Boulevard bar Bibo Ergo Sum will not formally reopen again as a result of the pandmic and months-long lockdowns. The bar will do a final sell-off of cocktails and bottles this weekend, however.
  • Piencone, the pizza hangout in Eagle Rock, is also moving on. Per signage on the front, it looks like Santa Cruz’s Saturn Cafe is moving in to take some, or all, of the large space.
  • The California-based Nomadica wine team is selling a special collection of Pride cans at Tabula Rasa and online, with 100% of profits benefitting the Transgender Law Center and Black Lives Matter.
  • Culver City’s Hatchet Hall reopens tonight, with a more condensed menu and a broad new parking lot patio dining situation.
