The former Tarascos is now home to  LA | Marni Epstein

On Thursday Haché LA, a new Silver Lake burger joint, celebrated their soft opening. “Soft” might an understatement as a steady stream of DJ-driven beats poured out of the former Sunset Boulevard home of Tarascos  alongside a stream of chef Michael ‘Mick’ Scheper’s minced steak burgers. For eight hours, the OC-based restaurant served up good will on a plate to their new neighborhood; their Habanero burger and signature Karma burger were each offered, not to mention the beer and freshly made strawberry basil lemonade.

In other Shopper & Diner news:

  • If surf is more your taste than turf, take note of Highland Park food truck Mariscos El Faro. The LA Times says the truck’s Mexican ceviche is some of the best around. With an intense salt curing process and a tasty salsa negra to go with, dare we say Mariscos El Faro is schooling others in how ceviche is done?
  • Echo Park will be catering to the tastes of the veggie and vegan crowd this weekend – their taste  in shopping, that is. Racked LA writes that this Saturday PETA will be transforming their rooftop deck  into a vegan shopping bazaar, offering wares from Cri de Couer, Sydney Brown, MooShoes, and more. This free, first-time pop up will be taking place 11 am – 6 pm.
  • Earlier this month Atwater Village welcomed new boutique Treehaus to the neighborhood. Situated on Glendale Boulevard, proprietors Saralynne Precht and Michelle Pedersen are curating a collection of locally made arts & crafts and carry everything from clothing, jewelry, home goods, toys, as well as books and cards.
