Ok, Violet has been open for around 2 weeks or so, is owned by Jared Simons, formerly of Le Passage French Bistro in Carlsbad, but has anyone been? Is in the former Sabor Too location at 3221 Pico, just west of the I-10 overpass. Likewise in that area is 310 Bistro - anyone been there in the former Flints space now operated by Nicholas Coe of South Pasadena fame?
Lastly, Suzanne and husband David Lentz, ex Opaline, etc. will open the Hungry Cat at 1555 N. Vine at Sunset in that jungle gym center across from the Arclight. To open in November or thereabouts.
