Chinese Group’s First Casual-Dining Outpost Opens

Since 1996, restaurant group Meizhou Dongpo has served millions of customers in over a hundred fine-dining locations in China, all with an emphasis on perfecting traditional Sichuanese cuisine in a formal setting.

Owners Chef Wang Gang and his wife, Liang Li, brought their fine-dining concept to Los Angeles in 2013 but were looking for other brand expressions. Located at Universal CityWalk Hollywood, Dongpo Kitchen is their first casual-dining location. It features an open kitchen and seating for more than 100, including an open-air patio.

Gresescent: Serving Ice Cream Magic In DTLA

Gresescent opens in DTLA and they’re serving lots of fresh velvety ice cream magic

As a kid, I enjoyed to chant, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” I usually did this when, a) ice cream was involved, or b) I wanted ice cream involved. So touche. We all have our moments, and mine just so happened to revolve around ice cream. Why? Because ice cream is delicious and special. It’s a simple pastime that’s easily enjoyed by everyone regardless of age. Qualities like those are what make Gresescent a memorable and tasty place that will make you fall in love with ice cream all over again. They’re centrally in South Park on 8th and Olive Street, close to all the construction, but don’t let that ward you off. Recently, I had the chance to meet with Gresescent’s co-founder Justin Chung to talk about the magic of ice cream, and what makes Gresescent, Gresescent (pronounced: “gres-uh-suh-nt”). There’s more to a name than meets the eye.

Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop Goes Veggie Casual With New Glendale Location

Glendale’s booming growth continues with the addition of healthy-eating salad temple Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop. The local mini-chain owned by Jon Rollo has been similarly busy of late, with outlets everywhere from Beverly Hills to Costa Mesa to the heart of Venice — and now, right in the thick of it all on Brand Boulevard.

The casual all-day restaurant officially opens to the public on October 10, joining the ranks of the recently-unveiled Shake Shack, Philz Coffee, and Mainland Poke across the street from The Americana. The only ones left to come online as of next week will be the long-awaited Eggslut.

Once Monday hits, guests at Greenleaf will be able to dive into a menu that features everything from barbecue chicken pizza to lemongrass chicken salads, with crunchier items and full chicken and steak entrees to match. There are also juices, protein shakes, craft beer, and wine available as well.
