That lonesome stretch between the 101 and Thai Town is not a particularly pretty slice of Hollywood Boulevard. Traveling east, the sidewalk stars (both living and marbled) have long since dissipated, and the lights and smells of a cultural identity are still on the horizon. Not much in the way of palm trees, and a desperate Pier 1 Imports hides behind a cement half-wall. But then again, there’s nothing particularly pretty about sausages, either. Which is perhaps the reason new gourmet sausage shop Grindhaus decided to open its doors at 5634 Hollywood Boulevard last week, just a few links away from an auto body shop, a bodega, and a tattoo parlor.
