We drove by the former Grace restaurant space on Beverly Boulevard last week and noticed workers putting the final touches on the exterior of the new restaurant opening there, Playa.
Now the Los Angeles Times food blog has confirmed that the restaurant is open. It is the creation of famed chef John Rivera Sedlar, who is best known for downtown spot Rivera. Sedlar describes Playa as an “urban Latin experience, a dynamic combination of earth and sea, rustic flavors and fresh, briny air, the fractured desert light of Santa Fe and the vibrant energy of modern Los Angeles.”
Anyone been there yet? Let us know how you liked it.
Playa is located at 7360 Beverly Boulevard, between Martel and Fuller.
