LITTLE OSAKA: There's a great addition coming to the Sawtelle stretch in Nongla, a cozy Vietnamese spot. The restaurant's a family affair, with recipes from the homeland. Swing by for the opening on May 20 for your dose of spring rolls and pho.
DOWNTOWN: Talk about an upgrade: Industriel has opened in a former Carl's Jr. space near Sixth and Grand. The two-story restaurant looks like a beaut. Soft opening is on, with an official ribbon-cutting set for tomorrow night's dinner. Food is described as thus: "urban farm cuisine meets country French eatery."
ECHO PARK: Señor Fish expands into Echo Park with a new eatery on Sunset, near Echo Park Avenue. Now soft open, the latest SF was delayed for months because of permit issues.
CULVER CITY: The well-regarded Cognoscenti Coffee will open up its first brick and mortar at the bottom of Clive Wilkinson Architects's new mixed-use complex on Washington, not too far from the Expo Line station. Expect more changes on this stretch of Washington.
