No more Maré; La Moscata’s birthday weekend; Sweetfin Poké’s block party debut

Headed by acclaimed chef Eric Greenspan, the restaurant’s business model “simply proved unsustainable.” Maré Silver Lake was the last of a chain of three restaurants to go dark, with the other two located on Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica.
