HOLLYWOOD: The three-years-in-the-making Osaka restaurant (pictured) officially opens next month, Eater reports. The restaurant appears to be Japanese-Peruvian fusion, with sushi and ceviche both available. There are three Osaka restaurants spread around South America, with this Hollywood Blvd. establishment being the first outside the continent.
VENICE: The owner of Axe, an Abbot Kinney restaurant that went up in flames last year, tells Eater that the restaurant will indeed reopen with the same concept. Though Joanna Moore insists the eatery is on track to be serving once again, there seems to be evidence it's also on the market.
DOWNTOWN: Also for sale is the Angelique Cafe, near the Fashion District. The neat 2,500 square foot parcel is a narrow wedge where Main and Spring meet (at Ninth). It appears the cafe, which opened long before Downtown reached the tipping point, will likely reopen in a different incarnation should it be purchased.
GROVE-ADJACENT: 3Twenty, a new wine-focused lunch and dinner establishment, opened for business on Monday near Third and La Brea. The owner is a sommelier and the chef is from New York's Spotted Pig, so that's a good start.
