Lenny’s Deli Abruptly Disappears From Westwood Blvd.

Well this is a shocker…  I’ve been hearing from readers who were astonished to learn that West LA landmark Lenny’s Deli abruptly shut its doors for good over the weekend at their 2379 Westwood Blvd. location.  Sure enough, a hand-written note pasted on the front declares that they are “officially closed”.   I’m not sure what has happened, or what will become of the massive space, but I’ll keep watching…

Update:  Eater has the full skinny here.

Menotti’s Coffee Stop Landing On Washington In LA

Poplar hip Venice caffeine joint Menotti’s Coffee Stop is continuing to expand.  Recently they appeared on Sunset in Hollywood.  Now, according to the new signs, it looks like that they are opening another location in an old hardware store at 12450 W Washington Blvd. in Los Angeles (Or is it Culver City?  It’s confusingly written both ways on-line.)  I’m not sure when the flat whites and cortados will start pouring, but it looks like they’re not too far off…

Mogu Mogu Taking Over The Dosanko Space On Olympic

The address at 11555 Olympic Blvd. in LA is proving itself to be a tricky one.  It used to be popular Ramenya, then Dosanko Ramen tried its luck, which sadly ran out.  Now a plucky new ramen and mazemen (no-broth ramen) joint named Mogu Mogu is poised to move in, at least according to a rather small announcement taped to the front door.  We wish them the best of luck.

Sachi Bringing Coffee And More To Centinela Ave.

A big wooden sign informs commuters that coffee is coming soon to the storefront at 4574 Centinela Ave. in LA.  Upon closer inspection, the name of the new shop will be Sachi.  Their website promises a “welcoming space influenced by Japanese culture and values- devoted to offering high quality coffee and food, stylish vintage clothing, healthy potted plants, and local artisan products”.

Pho Ever Comes To The Westside

On a tip from a reader (Thanks Dean!), I went to check out what was going on on the corner of Barrington and Pico.  It looks like a new Vietnamese restaurant is going into the space at 2404 Pico.  I’m not sure when Pho Ever will be opening, or if it’s related to any of the other “Pho Ever” restaurants out there, so we’ll just have to wait and see…
