What’s Going On In Westwood? Döner Done, More!

As you can tell if you read this blog, it’s been a hard Summer for restaurants…  But seriously, what’s going on in Westwood?  A quick jog around the Village left me gobsmacked, with no less that four restaurants recently deceased.  Last week I told you about the disappearance of long-standing Westwood anchor Tanino.  But add to the list Nushii, Lollicup, and perhaps most surprising, Spireworks.  If you recall, Spireworks burst on the scene back in 2016 and caused a stir by introducing The Westside to its signature Turkish döner (spit-roasted meat).  I’m not sure why the sudden exodus, but I’ll keep watching.

Tanino Finished In Westwood…

Well this came as a bit of shock, but longstanding red sauce joint Tanino Ristorante Bar appears to be finished at 1043 Westwood Blvd.  Tanino anchored the mercurial Westwood food scene for 20 years, but sadly paper is now covering the windows.  I’m not sure what happened, but I’ll keep watching to see what develops…
