Update on Los Feliz’s Tiki Ti: The legendary bar recently stated on its Facebook page that it is “proud to announce its return to normalcy starting Friday, May 22, we are back to our regularly scheduled shenanigans.” This is refreshing news for Tiki Ti’s thirsty fans, who have enjoyed its vast selection of 92 tropical drinks since it opened its doors in 1961. The Polynesian-themed bar abruptly shut its doors on May 6 due to restructuring.  The Sunset Boulevard bar is open Friday and Saturday, from 4 p.m. to 2 p.m. and returns to its regular schedule, which is usually Wednesday through Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reported.

In other Shopper & Diner news:

  • Boyle Heights’ Las Molenderas is gaining recognition on the mole scene with its mole poblano and mole poblano con chipotle prepared by mother-and-daughter team Marisol Feregrino and her mother, Estela Morales. Described by the LA Weekly as “laser-focused,” the mole masters serve dishes such as mole enchiladas, mole burritos, mole sopes, mole cemitas, envueltos with mole, mole nachos, mole cheese fries, mole flautas, mole quesadillas, mole chilaquiles and mole with fried eggs for breakfast.
  • Silver Lake’s Mixed Business was recently named “one of LA’s best-kept secrets” by Racked LA. The specialty retail shop carries its own label in addition to fine vintage and contemporary brands for men, women and children, accessories and modern home décor. Mixed Business is located on the 1800 block of Hyperion Avenue.
  • Atwater Village’s dining choices have turned up a notch with the coming of All’Acqua, or Atwater in Italian, according to the Glendale-News Press. Headed by renowned chef Don Dickman of Silver Lake’s Barbrix, All’Aqua’s pan-Italian fare has something for virtually any palate –well-cured salumi, hand-made pastas, octopus salad and wood-fired pizzas paired with wine, beer and a selection of craft cocktails. All’Aqua took over the space of what was Acapulco restaurant at the 3200 block of Glendale Boulevard. Its extensive renovation created a natural yet modern look that is induced with plenty of light, wood, high-pitched ceilings and Edison light fixtures.
