Derrick de Jesus, the Alma chef de cuisine who branched out with his own MSG pop-up last month at City Sip, is relocating the temporary restaurant to Venice. Since City Sip is now shuttered, the chef will be taking over every Monday at Brickhouse off of Abbot-Kinney, starting March 4 at 6:30. De Jesus is sticking to his market-driven menus, but will adapt to the ramen rage by serving a main course based on noodles from Sun Noodle. As the restaurant lacks a liquor license, de Jesus tells Grub Street he’s working on creating tea, coffee, and soft drink pairings for future events. Reservations can be made over email.
