Bluestone Lane Paving The Way In Brentwood

If you’ve noticed all the construction on the building at 11601 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood, on the corner of Wilshire, you may be wondering what’s coming…  Window paper recently went up letting us all know that the prominent location will soon be the home of Brentwood’s first branch of rapidly-expanding Australian coffee chain Bluestone Lane.  Where to find parking on the busy corner is anyone’s guess…

Divita’s Pizzeria Closed In West LA, New Restaurant And Wine Bar Expected

After over 40 years at 11916 Wilshire Blvd. in West Los Angeles, dusty landmark pizzeria Divita’s has closed its ancient doors.  Wasting now time whatsoever, it appears a new tenant is moving in.  The windows are papered over with quotes about wine from famous people and posted on the door is this mysterious message, “Coming Soon:  Your new local and independent restaurant and wine bar”.  The note is signed Vincent & Chase.  I’m not sure if that’s the name of the new establishment or just the names of the proprietors.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see…

Soybean Closed For Health Code Violation

Recently, I noticed that long-time neighborhood fixture and aggressive advertiser Soybean Chinese Food had closed its doors at 11966 Wilshire Blvd. in West LA.  And now we know why…  According to the notice posted on the front door, the restaurant was shut down due to a violation of the California Heath and Safety code.  Written on the notice are three perfunctory words: no hot water.  The windows have been papered over and it looks like someone may be moving in, but no word yet on what might be taking its place.  I’ll keep my eye on it.
