ECHO PARK — Red Hill closed at the end of last year, with the Echo Park Avenue restaurant undergoing a remodel that was expected to take a few weeks. Ten months later, the restaurant remains closed and its windows papered over. But recently there have been signs that restaurant is indeed preparing to reopen but apparently in a different format.
The exterior of the building, which once housed a Phoenix bakery until Red Hill opened in 2012, has been painted a glossy black as work continues on the interior. The Eastsider has contacted owner Jason Michaud about what’s going on but so far no details have been provided. However, one person at the site said the restaurant would reopen under a different name and format, possibly by December – a year after Red Hill closed.
What will be the new name of the restaurant and what will it serve? Stay tuned.
