Echo Park is gaining a sake bar but losing an ice cream shop; Silver Lake’s soft sheet addition; sweets in Los Feliz

Jul 20, 2018



Looks like the team that brought izakaya infused Tsubsaki in Echo Park are gearing up for another project, Eater LA reports. It’s a sake bar named Ototo and it’ll be right next to Tsubsaki in the coming months. Owners Courtney Kaplan and chef Charles Namba originally planned to occupy the former salon space to accommodate overflow dining. Instead, the team gave the space its own identity. Expect small batch sakes, shochu and Japanese craft beers plus a short menu from Tsubaki. Ototo is at 1360 Allison Ave. at Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park.

Looking for chic sheet sets? Parachute may have what you are looking for. With locations in New York City, Portland and Venice, Parachute’s fourth store in Silver Lake brings bedding sets, bath towels, chambray napkin sets, pillows, throws and lots of soft stuff to transform your home, Uncover LA reports. Parachute is at 3436 W. Sunset Blvd., across from Micheltorena Elementary School in Silver Lake.

Here’s a new spot to satisfy your sweet tooth – it’s Tuesday’s Sweet Shoppe. Named after the 3-year-old daughter of owners Michael and Emily Roiff, Tuesday’s Sweet Shoppe offers 170 candies. Treats include sour rings, saltwater taffy, chocolates and cotton candy by the bucket, KABC TV Los Angeles reports. Tuesday’s Sweet Spot is at 1937 ½ Hillhurst Ave. near Franklin in Los Feliz.

Bengee’s Ice Cream in Echo Park has apparently shuttered only a few months after opening, Yelp! users report. The outpost opened last December in Echo Park’s Mohawk Collective. What’s to come? Roots & Rye. Expect acai bowls and “superfood toasts,” the company states on Instagram. Roots & Rye is at 2134 Sunset Blvd. at Mohawk in Echo Park.

That’s it for this week’s Shopper & Diner Report!
