The Nickel Bar Set To Take Over The Il Grano Space

Remember back in October of last year, when we were informed by Eater that Il Grano, Western LA’s fine Italian restaurant known for its truffle menus (and consequently La Bottega Marino next door) were closing?  Since then, I’ve been watching things carefully.  Recently, the façade was redone, and the windows papered over indicating that a new establishment was taking over.  And now we know what is coming to the space at 11359 Santa Monica Boulevard.  It turns out, the upcoming restaurant will be a new venture named The Nickel Bar, brought to you by the same people behind Studio City’s The Woodman and Cocina Condesa.  I had a chance to speak to a rep, who gave me the skinny on the upcoming bar/restaurant.  The focus here is local sourcing for drinks/food in a cozy neighborhood environment with a prominent bar.  And while they’re still working things out, the menu will feature New York style pizza.  We wish them the best of luck.  Look for a projected August 1st opening.
