Eastside Shopper & Diner Report: Brite Spot patio opens; investing in vegetarian cafe futures

Just in time for an expected heat wave,  the Brite Spot in Echo Park has completed a new outdoor dining room on a portion of its parking lot.  The Brite Spot owners are not shy about colors, with orange chairs and black and white umbrellas set against teal blue  walls.
