A post moved to the "Chains" board says that a Chipotle is moving into the former Star Chicken next to Jerry's Famous Deli and across from Stan's Donuts. Anybody know if it is open yet? That spot is going to be tough, with no drivethru and the nearest parking structure down on Broxton that people don't seem to want to use. Jose Bernstein across the street to the west might be sweating, but they do ok with their small space and good specialties.
Anyone try Socko's Subs in the former Skewers space yet? I definitely miss the old Togos a couple blocks south. Is there any reason to go here rather than to the longstanding Sepi's or the cheap Roll Inn hut?
There is a fantastically economical and convenient new Flyaway bus service that goes nonstop to and from Westwood Village to LAX on the half-hour -- fares are only $4. The buses are coachtypes with those comfy big padded seats. They board outside of the UCLA 32 and 36 structure and lots on Kinross, a block west of Gayley. Close by are the Elysee bakery, the Headlines counter for breakfast or burgers, Lamonica's, and the Whole Earth just up Gayley to pack some sandwiches or fruit.
