Mixed Company’s short life in Silver Lake, Black Elephant marches into Atwater Village, Rock n’Eggs soon to rock Eagle Rock


Mixed Company in Silver Lake is done after 10 months, Eater LA reports. The owners spent more time obtaining permits and building out the Sunset Junction restaurant than they did operating it .  A note  posted on the front door announced the closure but did not provide details about what prompted the closure.  No word on what will replace Mixed Company.
