Shopper & Diner: Bowl and rock ‘n’ roll in Highland Park; all-vegan eatery in Silver Lake Whole Foods; Boyle Heights session beers


Highland Park Bowl returns to its old glory, Eater LA reports. The space was originally a bowling alley named when it opened 80-plus years ago. Then through the years it transitioned to Mr. T’s Bowl, where, most of the time, live bands performed, and bowling went to the wayside. Now the development team of 1933 Group has set its sights on bringing the bowling alley back to it roots. Expect Highland Park Bowl to open in late April with live music, craft beer, specialty drinks, minimum fare and its original Spanish revival vibe to boot. Highland Park Bowl is located on the 5600 block of N. Figueroa in Highland Park.

  • The New York-based all-vegan concept by CHLOE has partnered with 365 by Whole Foods to open a restaurant in the grocery chain’s new Silver Lake store, Eater LA reports. The partnership aligns with Whole Foods’ plan to trim costs and square footage of the flagship store, which has already been scaled down quite a bit. The restaurant will offer dine-in, communal or order-to-go options and a kitchen headed by chef Chloe Coscarelli, an award-winning vegan chef and best-selling cookbook author. 365 by Whole Foods is slated to open this summer in the former Ralphs  at Glendale Boulevard and Fletcher Drive in Silver Lake.
  • Indie Brewing Company in Boyle Heights was recently featured in LA Weekly. Owners Connor Forbes and Kevin O’Malley have certainly found their niche with their session beers, or low-alcohol beers. Their core beers, 7th Street Saison, Port(er) of Los Angeles and Eastside XPA, are crafted for folks who want to drink but not get smashed. Find Indie Brewing Company’s beers at Silver Lake wine, Sunset Beer Company in Echo Park and the Heights Market.
  • Alimento was named Los Angeles’ number one Italian restaurant by Los Angeles Magazine. Chef Zach Pollack doesn’t disappoint with his menu, which focuses on quality rather quantity. Hollow strands of whole-wheat bigoli, white-bean-and-farro soup and plump tortellini are some of what is offered at the acclaimed eatery. Alimento is located on the 1700 block of Silver Lake Boulevard in Silver Lake.
