Downtown continues to bring it when it comes to exciting new restaurants and now Brigham Yen reports on the rise of a secondary “restaurant row,” growing aside the restaurant-dense 7th Street stretch that manifested over the years. Yen next readies the city center for Industriel, a new French concept coming to Grand and 7th from Armen Hakobayan, the owner of Old Town Pasadena’s Green Street Tavern in the next month or two.

Along the way, he spies “something interesting happening” as Grand Ave. expands the sprawl of eateries that includes Bottega Louie, Casey’s, the reworked Water Grill, and a potential location of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. [Brigham Yen]
