HIGHLAND PARK — Cookbook, the tiny Echo Park Avenue grocery, is opening a second shop in the 5600 block of Figueroa Street, which is emerging as a Highland Park hot spot for new stores, restaurants and bars.
Owners Marta Teegan and Robert Stelzner announced the news in a brief email sent to customers and supporters. “We are super excited to announce the opening of our second store in the spring – Highland Park, here we come,” said the email.
Cookbook, which opened six years ago inside a small Echo Park Avenue storefront, has become known for a relatively small but high-end – as well as high-priced – selection of fresh produce, meats, cheeses, and other groceries.
Teegan and Stelzner did not provide an exact location of their Highland Park store, saying only that it would open between avenues 56 and 57.
That stretch of Figueroa has seen a lot of activity as businesses that once catered primarily to working-class Latinos have made way for new tenants into renovated storefronts. The block has seen the opening of the restored Highland Park Bowl, Civil Coffee and ETA cocktails. Meanwhile, the Highland Hotel is being renovated into lofts and Cafe Birdie and Homestate are planning to open restaurants soon.
