Checker Hall officially checks into Highland Park this Saturday, Eater LA reports. It serves as the restaurant of the Lodge Room, a newly opened music venue. Located on the second story of a former Masonic lodge, the restaurant overlooks Figueroa Street. Mediterranean fare and cocktails are what’s in store for a little grub before watching a show. Checker Hall is located in the 100 block of N. Avenue 56 in Highland Park.

Eightfold Coffee now has a food menu designed by a former chef de cuisine at Alma Downtown and Alma at the Standard, Eater LA reports. It’s a move by the company to set itself apart from the already overflowing café scene in Echo Park. Think simple fare such as a brioche omelette sandwiches and chia pudding. Eightfold Coffee is located in the 1200 block of W. Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park.
