Broxton Moves Into The Yamato Space In Westwood

Late last year, Eater gave us information about Artisanal Brewers Collective’s take over the iconic Yamato space at 1099 Westwood Blvd.  It appears that plans are going forward, as late last week, an ABC license application was pasted to the front confirming just that.  And the name of the new craft beer establishment?  It is listed on the application as Broxton.

St. Supery Winery… Beverly Hills?

In oenophile news…  You could be forgiven if you didn’t expect to see an ABC license application posted to the front of one of the big flashy storefronts on tony Rodeo Dr. in Beverly Hills.  Yet there one is taped to the door at 408 Rodeo, a cavernous space that used to house luxury porcelain maker Lladró .  The location has sat empty for a while, but according to the application, it will soon be the SoCal home of Napa Valley’s St. Supery Winery.  The license application is a “02 Winegrower“, which means a non-retail type, so I’m not certain what’s going on here. I guess we’ll just have to keep watching…


Publique Taking Over The Border Grill Space In Santa Monica

Ever since the tragic demise of Santa Monica’s beloved branch of Border Grill, I’ve kept a careful watch on the space at 1445 4th St.  I’ve been hearing whispers, and a design review mentioned something called Publique, but I couldn’t get confirmation.  But then late last week the for lease signs came down, and an ABC application was posted on the front informing us the Le Zinc Bar (Zinqué) will be opening a restaurant called Publique.  You can check out the design review, including plans for an open air patio, and an artist’s rendering here.
