Gobi Mongolian BBQ Grand Opening Sizzles in Silver Lake
Even though it has reportedly been open since July, last week the owners of Gobi Mongolian BBQ in Silver Lake decided to "kick it up a notch" and ran with a pro-style grand opening for the Mongolian barbecue house. LAist was in attendance, although we snagged more pictures than food, due to the wildly oversubscribed event. Lines were out the door and on to the sidewalk, a sight that more typically signifies a popular band rocking the neighborhood than a restaurant opening.
Gobi joins the same block populated with local darlings Gamine Salon and Rambutan Thai. It's no surprise that the opening event was packed with friends, family and special guests, as it is part owned by the same folks who run the always-busy Pazzo Gelato, a favorite hang of the Sunset Junction crowd.
