What do you get when a vegetarian DJ and a downtown bar owner join forces? Answer: An Echo Park vegetarian restaurant and lounge. Eater L.A. reports that DJ/producer Goura Chandra and the owner of downtown’s Seven bar, Raffi Roumdikian, will open up the new restaurant at the base of the new Echo 1030 Loft building on Alvarado Street near Sunset Boulevard. Chandra told Eater what to expect from the yet to be named restaurant:
In addition to a conventional dining room and lounge, the restaurant will also encompass a to-go counter selling wraps, sandwiches, and salads “in our mini Whole Foods-type [convenience] store which will be a part of the [restaurant] (no dividing walls).”
Also expect a bar serving craft beer and boutique wines and guest DJs appearing in a lounge. More details in Eater LA.
