We knew that Surya was being scrapped, but Blackburn and Sweetzer also discovers that Ronin Izakaya has committed seppuku before its chance to reopen. Surya is losing ground to a more direct concept called Burger Factory and the Ronin find was made while exploring LaCienega’s new Chili Addiction. We’ll join our elders in asking where this neighborhood is going.
Just like Ronin’s plans have been sliced short, we noticed a similar “For Lease” sign in Palms for Bul-Gogi’s planned Korean Fusion restaurant, which we saw sprouting up in November. Guess some things, like Westside Korean barbecue options, are just not meant to be.
