Brooke Williamson Planning Oinkers and Turkey Pastrami at The Tripel


Eater reports that Brooke Williamson and her husband Nick Roberts are coming back to Westside L.A. and taking over the slain Minotaure Wine Bar space with another beer-centric project called The Tripel, in reference to the triple threes in its Culver Blvd. address and the Trappist-style ale they plan to obsess over. Slated for early 2011, so far the food sounds less casual than their Redondo Beach-bound Hudson House, although Mrs. Williamson promises, “lighter snacky foods.” They will make their own turkey pastrami for a blue cheese triple-creme melt, serve rotating pates, and an oinker burger with pork, duck confit, truffle cheese, and apricot jam. Williamson made the Beechwood burger famous during her reign there post-Amuse Cafe. Could this so-called “oinker” be another hit between buns from Brooke?

The Tripel, coming to 333 Culver Blvd. Playa del Rey in January.
