Eagle Rock staple Camilio’s closes; Dave’s Chillin’ & Grillin’ moving to Highland Park; Silver Lake’s Trophy Wife



It’s the end of the road for long standing Eagle Rock restaurant Camilio’s California Bistro, Eater LA reports. Rising operating costs, personal illness  as well as slow growing revenues are some of the reasons why the owners of the almost 20-year-old restaurant decided to shut its doors.

In other Shopper & Diner news:

Dave’s Chillin’ & Grillin’ will soon be up and running again but in a new location. According to Eater LA, the decade-old Eagle Rock  sandwich shop that shut down last year due to high rents has found a new home in Highland Park.  Dave’s Chillin & Grillin’ could be reopen as soon as next month  inside the former Frank’s Camera building,on the 5700 block of N. Figueroa in Highland Park.

Eastside sports fans will soon have another watering hole to watch their favorite matchups by way of Trophy Wife. Eater LA reports that what is described as an “upscale sports bar”  comes from Anat Escher, a longtime restaurateur and real estate investor who operated the now defunct Barbarella and Charcoal BBQ in Silver Lake. Expect the new bar to have television screens, casual drinks and bar snacks. As far as the upscale vibe? You will have to wait until the place opens. Trophy Wife will be in the 7100 block of Hyperion Avenue, above Mi Corazon.
