Lots of Arts District News!
Nola’s Soul Food Kitchen to open this Summer. The new restaurant is replacing E3 Steakhouse (734 E 3rd St). I’m hoping for authentic yumminess.
Bloom’s General Store (716 Traction Ave) will reopen with a new name. At first the new owner was going to name it “Little Tokyo Shopette” Arts District Residents were not happy with the new name (as it’s in the AD not LT), so the new name is still being decided. It will still be a convenience store of sorts. More about Joel Bloom and the old Bloom’s General store here.
Also, there is news that the old Ay Caramba (714 Traction Ave) will be a pie shop! I hope it’s old-fashioned and fun.
And don’t forget about:
“Presented at 3rd Street and Traction Avenue in the Downtown Arts District, BloomfestLA offers live indie music, local artisan wares, and good food amidst a rotating outdoor gallery of street art by renowned artists.”*Thanks to the Arts District Facebook Group for all the news!
