WEST HOLLYWOOD: Eater has a look inside SBE's new HYDE Sunset: Kitchen & Cocktails in the old XIV building on the Strip. The design is by Waldo Fernandez, the menu—full of shareables—is by Top Chef alum Chris Crary. Opening is July 20.
SOUTH PARK: The replacement for Il Mare, located at the base of a parking garage at Hope and Eleventh, is a North African/Spanish/French/Mexican concept called The Briks. The name comes from a menu item similar to samosas. Soft-opening on Wednesday; grand opening in August.
FINANCIAL DISTRICT: So, the tallest building in the West, downtown's US Bank tower, is getting an observation deck and a restaurant on the sixty-ninths through seventy-first floors. What should it be? You won't believe what Eater readers want up there.
