Let’s Go 4 Tea In Westwood…

On a tip from a reader (Thanks Jeremy!) I went by to check out what was going on in the bolthole space that used to be the home of L Kitchen at 952 Gayley in Westwood Village.  Sure enough, paper is covering the window and informing us that something is coming.  While I can’t read the writing on the front, one small detail is written in English:  Let’s Go 4 Tea, which I’m guessing is the name.  I assume that this will be another tea and boba shop.  If you have other information, let me know…

Dun Huang Bringing Noodles To Westwood Soon…

With all the depressing news of closures, it’s good to see new restaurants coming.  Back in October of last year, I told you about the disappearance of El Pollo Loco from its location at 1081 Gayley in Westwood.  It appears a new eatery is going to give the space a go.  Signs are up announcing that Dun Huang is moving in.  I believe its the same Dun Huang that has locations in New York and one CA location in Rowland Heights.  If that is the case, we can expect Northwestern Chinese food on offer, and apparently epic handmade noodles.  We wish them the best of luck.

Northern Cafe Continues Its Conquest Of Westwood

Asian food specialist Northern Café has quietly been leading the recent tenuous revival of Westwood Village.  In 2016 they opened a dumpling restaurant on Gayley, followed by a noodle joint on Weyburn earlier this year.  Now a banner is up on the space at 1061 Broxton, former location of SpireWorks, announcing their intention to open a Chinese hot pot restaurant.  We wish them the best of luck…
