Sadly, this beloved Italian restaurant across from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center shuttered after over 60 years in business. That means you can no longer fuel up on red sauce before Botox. Chef Brandon Boudet’s pig roasts and Cajun feasts will also be missed, although sister restaurant Little Dom’s lives on.
John Park found he was competing with nearby Quenelle -- his other concept -- so he flipped Ice Que into Pokestuf. Thankfully, he moved a shaved-snow machine to his San Marino ice cream shop and now offers Ice Que’s famed funnel cake ice cream sandwich in Burbank on Wednesday nights and in San Marino on Friday and Saturday nights.
After 18 years, Sal Marino closed up his seasonal, progressive Italian restaurant in West LA. The man who put crudo on the map in the city and grows more than 40 tomato varieties in his backyard may resurface with a new project, but in the meantime, his family runs old-school Marino Ristorante in Hollywood.
