Los Feliz food truck fest causes stir; breadmaker’s new Elysian Valley digs; changes at Trois Familia



A Los Feliz food truck festival has received mixed reviews from local businesses, the Los Feliz Ledger reports. Apparently, some undisclosed restaurant owners believe that the food trucks have taken their clientele while others, such as Mexico City’s Albert Solis, believe that the festival increases his restaurant’s visibility.  The festival takes place on Saturday and Wednesday evenings  until March 21 in the parking lot of the closed Palace restaurant, on the corner of Hillhurst and Ambrose avenues.

Expect more bread making from Bub and Grandma’s. According to Eater LA, owner Andy Kadin says that the move from a 600-square-foot facility to its new 6,000 square feet home in Elysian Valley will increase output tenfold. Big restaurant names — such as Sqirl and Mozza — turn to Bub and Grandma’s for its bread.  Bub and Grandma’s is located in the 2400 block of Riverside Drive in Elysian Valley

There’s a few changes brewing at French-Mex restaurant Trois Familia, Eater LA reports. The big shift comes with the addition of a budget-friendly dinner, beer and wine menu. But if you’ve become accustomed to eating breakfast there from 10 a.m. to noon weekdays, you’ll need to change your routine. Breakfast is no longer available weekdays, just for weekend brunch at 10 a.m. Doors now open at noon weekdays. Trois Familia is located in the 3500 block of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.
