Restaurant Openings, Closures

L.A.’s Pitfire Pizza opened a new restaurant late last month at Lankershim and Magnolia in the heart of North Hollywood’s arts district. The wood-fired pizza joint overhauled a massive 12,000-square-foot property to include indoor seating for 70 guests and an outdoor beer garden and patio, complete with yard games. The swanky design is part of a brand overhaul for Pitfire Pizza, which has seven locations on the West Coast, including in Westlake Village and Pasadena. Superba Snacks + Coffee, a daytime café and offshoot of Pitfire Pizza from owner-operators Paul Hibler and American Gonzo Food Corp., will also open on the property. The Sit Down, an Italian favorite in Los Feliz, closed in late October after a landlord dispute resulted in the owners’ eviction from the property. A post on the restaurant’s Facebook page described how the landlord, who purchased the property in 2018, has vacated almost all of the business tenants, including an apparel retailer and medical marijuana clinic. In anticipation of the eviction, The Sit Down opened another location in Melrose this spring. Glendale’s latest oasis for watching sports and drinking beer is Greyhound Bar and Grill, already well-known for its Highland Park outlet. The new spot moved to 933 S. Brand Blvd. in early October, taking the place of Palate Food & Wine. Its menu will add Blue Island oysters and an expanded wine program under chef Josh Davis. The Thousand Oaks outlet of novelty candy and soda store Rocket Fizz shuttered in late October. Its retail property on Moorpark Road has been scooped up by Grabbagreen, a fast-casual chain serving health foods and fresh juice. It will be operated by local franchisees Dustin and Michelle Wilson, the duo behind Ventura County’s first Grabbagreen, which opened in early 2017 in the Skyline Plaza. The new location is expected to open in January. Thousand Oaks will welcome a new craft brewery early next year as Pedals & Pints Brewing Co. sets up shop at 156 W. Hillcrest Drive, the former site of a Red Lobster. In addition to pouring lagers and pilsners, the brewery is brimming with cycling décor that will make it the go-to viewing spot for the Tour De France and other major biking events. It will open the second week of January, according to the Ventura County Star.
