Coles Construction from Eater LA
DOWNTOWN: Competing restaurants Philippe's and Coles are both in the news. Philippe the Original turns 100 this year, so Eater recaps the LAT mag's historical look back when a meal cost 25 cents, and included a pint of homemade wine. In other French Dip news, Coles P.E. Buffet is pushing back its reopening to this fall, with Grace's Neal Fraser still consulting on the menu.
MALIBU: The new Malibu Pier Club opened this week. Expect "cocktails and foodstuffs like ahi tacos, kobe burger, truffle chips, 'brick-pressed mojo sandwich,' and 'caesar salad fondue.'" Oh yeah, and the sand and surf.
CULVER CITY: After what seems like months and months of waiting, the plywood on the new Father's Office in the Helms Building finally came down. Eater guesses the gastropub will open mid-April, but owner Sang Yoon likes to play coy. Shall we start a betting pool?
