Looks like Guisados Echo Park. beat out Guisados Downtown. Poor Downtown, still getting shafted from being first second of everything. Late Friday Eastsider reported Chef-Owner De La Torre is aiming for a January opening. Original Guisados first birthday was only last week, hopefully Guisados Downtown will open way before the Echo Park location turns one.
In other news, De La Torre’s “other” Monterey Park venture may be on the ropes. Rumor has been swirling the chef may consider closing Dorados, his ceviche project. Despite ceviche turning rather hip this year, Dorados, an extremely pleasant Westside-worthy build-out, is on a strip of a heavily Asian-populated city with parking difficulties. It never caught on like De La Torre’s other ventures.
