In this case, the former church and commercial space at Sunset Boulevard and Golden Gate Avenue is landing an upscale donut place based out of Oregon, a ramen shop connected to a highly regarded Japanese noodle maker and a trendy bedding shop from an online retailer headquartered in Venice.such donuts as Passionfruit Cocoa Nibs, Blueberry Bourbon Basil and Cointreau Creme Brulee.
Ramen Tatsunoya is also just starting to branch beyond its birthplace. It opened its first American restaurant in 2015, in Pasadena – where it’s doing a booming business, Eater said.
Meanwhile, UncoverLA — as well as several billboards along Sunset — announce the arrival of Parachute, an online retailer of bedding, at Sunset Gateway. The store — the second brick-and-mortar location for Parachute — is expected to stock sheets, towels, pillows and throws but no word if it will be selling it new line of beds for dogs. The Silver Lake shop is one of 20 Parachute plans to open after raising $30 million in investment, reports the L.A Business Journal.
The developer behind Sunset Gateway, Engine Real Estate, has a reputation for signing up relatively unique, small-chain restaurants and retailers to its projects. In Echo Park, they have a vegan cheesecake shop and a Japanese sandwich shop.
In Highland Park, there’s Mr. Holmes Bakehouse (home of the croissant-muffin hybrid known as the Cruffin), Blind Barber (a barbershop-restaurant combination that has sought a liquor license) and Otoño a Spanish restaurant specializing in Catalonia-influenced cuisine.
Blue Star, Ramen Tatsunoya & Parachute will be located at the southeast corner of Sunset and Golden Gate in Silver Lake.
