The former Sunset Boulevard home of Nuvia’s Restaurant & Pupuseria had sat empty for a few years, with tables and counters gathering dust inside the Echo Park storefront. But recently, the interior of the building at 1525 Sunset has been gutted as new owners prepare to open a new restaurant. What kind?
The new owners declined to provide details about their menu but said they plan to open in four months in the approximately 1,100-square-foot building wedged between the former Villainy General Store and a hair salon. With new and soon-to-open Echo Park restaurants offering up everything from vegan cuisine to meaty sandwiches, what gap is left to be filled in the neighborhood’s restaurant scene?
