It’s official: According to the signs posted in the window over the weekend, LA’s very own Dunkin’ Donuts is set to open at 5:00am on Tuesday, September 2nd at 1132 Wilshire Blvd. (corner of 12th) in Santa Monica. This will be the first outpost of what appears to be a major expansion into the West Coast. Look for a menu of breakfast and lunch sandwiches, fetish-inducing coffee, and, well… donuts.
By 8:00pm Monday evening a line began to form…
And by 7:00am Tuesday morning, panic breaks out…News cameras, traffic jams, lines around the block!

Susan Feniger’s Street is throwing a New Year’s Eve bash complete with a special menu that promises to “explode all five” of your senses… plus one more!? (Hmmm) Actually the sixth sense is a surprise to take home with you. Entitled Essence of the Senses, the themed night boasts a 5 course menu of exotic bites from around the globe including such enticing treasures as ear of corn tamale with fresh corn, roasted poblano chiles, pumpkin, and huitlacoche and Indian sev puri crisps with spiced potatoes, two chutneys, yogurt and cilantro water. See entire menu here http://www.eatatstreet.com/pdfs/nye10.pdf. And, you can soothe your aching head at their brunch the following day provided you can get out of bed.
