I took my walk to Yogurtland last night.
Tapenade (Sawtelle and Olympic) has closed, and an Italian place has opened in its place. I can't remember the name, but it's as obvious as something like "Italian Eatery."
Tsujita LA Villa looked pretty good from the outside. There's an enormous chandelier hung in the courtyard, and the lit up restaurant portion looked almost ready. I am happy because I really enjoy Tsujita and the Annex, and I loved the small plates Tsujita served at night. I hope they go back to that menu after the Villa opens.
Finally, does anyone have a recommendation for cold noodles on Sawtelle?
