Or so we hope, since we count Urth's food and coffee among our guilty L.A. restaurant pleasures. At least they'll be DBs of perhaps a different variety than at the WeHo, BH and Santa Monica locations. And then let there be an official moratorium on the word "douchebag."
Anyway, when visiting Josh in his fab new digs at the Barker Block, we got free cappuccino Italia and lemonades. That's because Urth Caffé on Hewitt in the "Artists'" Loft District -- a factually obsolete neighborhood designation -- opens Monday. Just like most restaurant openings, it's been just a tad delayed. The brick pseudo industrial and Deco building with fancy tile work houses a full baking facility and a lot of Urth's operations, which should help hedge against this location's failure. Stylistically it's a nice departure from Urth's other spots.
Soft opening is this Monday the 27th, and the official Grand Opening shindig is Sunday, November 16th from noon to 7:00 p.m.
451 South Hewitt Street
