Thi and Nguyen Tran’s Starry Kitchen may soon return to their own restaurant, L.A. Downtown News reports. While continuing their nightly runs at Tiara Cafe, the Trans say they have been scouting around Bunker Hill and South Park with a new lunch spot in mind. In our search for confirmation, Nguyen tells Grub Street, “You know how I sent that convoluted message when we closed our original space down? How we were going to come back… that’s no fucking lie. It’s time to return back to our lunch roots. And with Chipotle’s Southeast-Asian concept, Shop House, opening in our backyard in Santa Monica the upcoming months, you know we got to step up to that challenge in the culinary sandbox some of us call.. Los Angeles!” Okay…Guess we’ll take that as a confirmation then.
