The latest updates from Eater LA, Curbed's hedonistic eating and drinking blog...
MID-CITY: What a pleasant addition to the Pico/Fairfax area--the Paper or Plastik coffee shop (pictured) opens on Saturday, and is described by our friends at Eater as Intelligentsia-like (gentrification alert!).
CULVER CITY: Speaking of gentrification, another space in Culver City is turning into a yuppie eating paradise. The people behind the popular Rush Street are planning a new restaurant for the old Double Dutch space. Eater predicts a late '10 opening.
NORTH HOLLYWOOD: Near Lankershim and Riverside is Summer Canteen, which opened earlier this month. With influences from Burma, Vietnam, and Northern Thailand, the restaurant has a nice industrial look and is open for lunch and dinner.
LOS FELIZ: This could be wonderful or make an already busy situation a complete clusterfunk. The reliably delicious Alcove on Hillhurst is adding a bar to its space called Big Bar, featuring fruity libations and fancy syrups.
WEST HOLLYWOOD: That was fast--Agura on the north end of La Cienega's restaurant row has shuttered after 10 months of operation. But no worries, the place is getting rejiggered and relaunching in September.
