Zeke’s Smokehouse Is Extinguished in West Hollywood

Zeke’s Smokehouse has closed its West Hollywood storefront, meaning a trip to the surviving location in Montrose will be necessary for anyone still hankering for Michael Rosen’s brisket. Eater pins the blame on Baby Blues, the Food Network darling that expanded nearby from Venice towards the tail end of Zeke’s run. Someone please tell us this increases the value of our bottle of Zeke’s dry rub and that our Doghouse Diplomas still guarantee us a good job. [Eater]
