Under Construction: Lots of New Restaurants Coming this Fall

Sirena on Beverly Boulevard
Under Construction: Formerly Pan e Vino, Sirena will open later this year

The Greater Wilshire Neighborhood is perfectly positioned to enjoy some of the best restaurants in the City of Los Angeles. And for those who believe that variety is the spice of life, a number of new restaurants are on tap for this Fall. Eater LA previewed a broader group of new openings and we have culled the list down to those that are within our neighborhood – or a short drive.

MessHall Kitchen (Los Feliz) – this new joint, in the space that was formerly Louise’s Trattoria on Los Feliz Boulevard, promises to be a unique twist on American classics, with a creative bar to top it off. Chef Keith Sliverton gave a sneak preview of the menu earlier this summer in a pop-up Test Kitchen event at Short Order (at The Farmer’s Market) and the reviews were pretty good. Opening set for September 10.  EaterLA: MessHall Looking at Early September Opening

The Fat Cow (The Grove) – Gordon Ramsay’s European inspired farm-to-table eatery is slated to soon in the space that was formerly home to The Farm of Beverly Hills. We can’t wait to experience Ramsay’s vision for the space (and the 200 seats will help to take some of the pressure off other Grove restaurants). EaterLA notes that The Fat Cow management has started to hire front of house staff.  EaterLA:  LA’s 20 Most Anticipated Fall Openings

Sirena (Beverly) – one of our family favorite restaurants, Pan e Vino, fell victim to the recession about a year ago. Sirena, a California/Italian farm-to-table concept, is under construction and should open sometime this Fall according to EaterLA. Can’t wait to get back to one of our favorite LA patios! EaterLA: Sirena Under Way on Beverly, Opening Slated for Fall

TBA* in the former The Tar Pits space (La Brea) – you might be curious about what is happening in this empty space on the west side of La Brea, just south of Melrose. Mark Peel’s restaurant The Tar Pits closed earlier in the year. An interesting group has come together to create something new…and with their backgrounds it just might keep some of you up nights in anticipation!  The LA Times sums up the promise of this new restaurant perfectly…

Jason Bernstein and James Starr, owners of the Golden State on Fairfax, are taking over the former Tar Pit location on La Brea Avenue to open a restaurant with Kevin Bludso, of Bludso’s BBQ in Compton. Yes, the duo behind L.A.’s favorite upstart craft beer/beer float/burger joint is teaming with the man behind L.A.’s favorite Texas-meets-Compton barbecue. And on top of that, there will be cocktails. – LA Times, June 8, 2012

This restaurant is projected to open by the end of the year. Keep your eyes open and let us know if you see a giant smoker being delivered…

*TBA – to be announced
