New restaurant & paper goods store open in Silver Lake; eyeglass boutique headed for Echo Park



Just in time for Valentine’s Day comes the elegantly appointed Maré – a pan-Mediterranean restaurant that took over the Barbarella space in Silver Lake, Eater LA reports. Low lighting, a wraparound bar, exposed ceilings with access to a covered patio equipped with a Foosball table creates a fun and romantic vibe. Opens Tues., Feb 7.
