In the midst of this increasingly slick and exhilarating pocket of the city, chef Tin Vuong has dropped his seventh project: the second outpost of his Manhattan Beach restaurant Little Sister and his second venture east of the 405. (Vuong’s Wildcraft, in Culver City, is barely east of it.) Despite the geographic divide between the two Sisters, there are notable similarities. The concept at both is East-meets-West but feels much more like East-meets-East (maybe with a touch of French): Think imperial and spring rolls, curries and fiery salads, claypot and hot pot — basically a range of influences from Chinese to Thai to Vietnamese to Malaysian to everything in between. One notable difference: The downtown location serves breakfast. —Mara Shalhoup
