Two of this year’s most “thrilling restaurant openings” are on the Eastside, LA Weekly reports.
There’s the unnamed Highland Park project from the Everson Royce Bar team. Springing from their success with Everson Royce Bar in the Arts District, business partners Randy Clement and Matt Molina are now putting their focus on Italian food – not surprising given Molina’s background at Osteria Mozza.
We can only speculate what’s to come. But Clement and Molina told the Weekly that their new venture it will be “an Italian eatery on Figueroa whose concept is under development.” We’re assuming this new restaurant will open up in the 5900 block of Figueroa, where Clement and partners have been working on opening a large restaurant-wine-coffee complex for several years now.
Meanwhile, in Echo Park, Cosa Buona also made the list of highly anticipated restaurant openings. This project comes care of Zack Pollack, who already has Alimento in Silver Lake. But the Weekly says Cosa Buena will be more casual. Pollack’s new restaurant will fill the old location of Pizza Buona, and will offer pizza, comfort food and Italian-American classics.
