Well, Empress opened last night in the remodeled Sushi on Sunset digs. It looks stunning from the strip, yet has anyone been there yet for their soft opening? East meets west philosophy of cooking, so I hear. Chef is former Rod Aglibot assistant at Yi Cuisine, with Rod consulting on menu, etc.
Likewise, someone mentioned that BLD was trying a soft opening on Beverly, yet tonight it was not only soft, it was closed.
And of course in that same neighborhood, Eat Well is now in the former Cafe Tartine premises, doing what Eat Well does best.
