L.A. lost a few old-timers this month: Ernie Jr.'s Taco House shuttered after 41 years, and father/daughter duo Guy and Sylvie Gabrielle bid adieu to Café Pierre after serving the Manhattan Beach community for 37 years (although they're planning to re-open as a new restaurant, Love and Salt, with chef Michael Fiorelli)

In opening news, Roy Choi's newest operation, POT, is now underway at The Line Hotel, and EightyTwo, a bar-meets-arcade concept, landed in the Arts District. Read below for more recent restaurant openings and closings.

  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
