This Week's Openings and Closings Around LABy Lesley Balla
February 28, 2014
New restaurants open while others shutter, such is the cycle of dining life in LA. Here are top news makers from the week:
Open: Sugarfina, the chic little Beverly Hills candy shop where Champagne and peach bellini gummies rule, has opened a pop-up inside the new Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in BevHills. Get your pretty turqoise-blue bento boxes filled with candies 60 minutes prior and 30 minutes following performances.
Chef Changes: The global bbq joint Roadhouse LA has only been open for a few weeks, but opener Robbie Richter is out and new chef Kyle Schutte is in. Reps say Schutte, who was last at The Corner Door, will keep a lot of the dishes already popular on the menu, including the whole animal heads, but he'll add his own creations over the next few weeks.
