Jason Michaud, in an interview with Squid Ink, remained kind of vague about what he will be serving at Red Hill, his new Echo Park restaurant now being built inside the former Phoenix Bakery building at Echo Park Avenue and Montana Street. “There will be a lot of Latin and Japanese flavors,” he told the food blog. Michaud provided more details, however, about another aspect of the 60-seat restaurant – the roof. Here is what he has in mind:
Eventually, Michaud wants Red Hill to have a rooftop pocket garden that will grow all of the restaurant’s jalapeños and bell peppers. The decor will pay homage to old Echo Park, with trolley imagery adorning the interior and 12-inch mini-cars racing around the top of the roof.
Sounds like the top of Red Hill might give the nearby Jensen’s Recreation Center sign competition as Echo Park’s most notable rooftop landmark.
