Restaurant Openings Around Town
One of the most exciting new spots to hit Hollywood this month is actually not new at all -- Loteria Grill. Chef Jimmy Shaw's Farmer's Market staple, home to some of the best tacos in the city, has expanded out to a new Hollywood location near the Highland complex. And this time around, they're serving alcohol! Until very late at night! (They're open til midnight during the week, and until 3am on the weekends.)
But if tacos and burritos aren't your deal, there are a couple other new eateries and bars to check out soon. Rush Street, a Chicago-inspired bar and restaurant that will be opening to the public this weekend. Rush Street is located smack dab in Culver City's booming Restaurant Row, and will boast a rooftop lounge, bar food, and tasty cocktails. EaterLA has the scoop.
Valley rats will be very happy to hear about The Fifth, a classy hidden spot on Whitsett in Studio City, courtesy of the same group that is responsible for The Woods in Hollywood and NoBar in North Hollywood.
And finally, Eating LA turned us on to newcomer Garage Pizza in Silver Lake, where menu items like the "Tree Hugger" (a vegan pie) and "Annihilator" (a meaty explosion) promise to appeal to veg-heads and carnivores alike. Happy eating, L.A.!!!
