More beer & wine to flow in Silver Lake; Atwater’s Ozu gets rave review; Echo Park eyebrow care


Rambutan Thai in Silver Lake is doing a switcheroo, transforming into Same Same wine and beer bar by April 13, reports Eater LA. Thai bar snacks and street food favorites are still on tap. Rambutan owners Katy Noochlaor and Annie Daniel are partnering with Holly Zack, Adam Weisblatt and Australian barman Angus McShane of Last Word Hospitality to bring Same Same to life. Same Same is located on the 2800 block of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.

In other Shopper & Diner News:

  • Ozu East Kitchen in Atwater Village is exactly what the neighborhood needs, according to Besha Rodell of the LA Weekly. While the review calls the Pan-Asian restaurant “hardly remarkable,” Ozu has “taken the needs of the urban creative class and boiled them down into a formula that makes sense….” Ozu East Kitchen is located on the 3200 block of Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village.
  • A new business has its eye on Echo Park. Sublime Eyes, a Hollywood eyebrow threading, tinting and beauty salon, is planning to open up a second location at 1547 Sunset, just east of Echo Park Avenue. Why Echo Park? “We think it’s a very hip area and very up and coming,” says an assistant to owner Angel Cisneros.  Expect Sublime Eyes to open as soon as next week.

  3. I hope Same Same will have beer offerings from our great local breweries, instead of shipping in old IPAs from Colorado and the East Coast.
