Word just in from the press reps for Bob Lynn's The Misfit, the La Grande Orange founder's restaurant that will take over the shuttered Anisette space (but can' never erase the memories). At 11:00 A.M. on the 28th, The Misfit will open with chef Bruce Kalman behind the stoves. Kalman will offer three daily menus of dishes prepared in-house, with the promise of a "wide selection" of vegan and vegetarian fare. The restaurant will be open seven days a week and get freaky into the late-night, serving bar snacks and cocktails from a still-yet-to-be-announced mixologist of national renown, to be announced soon. While you wait for the opening, make sure to take a last look at that creepy hiring video for a sense of the style here.
The Misfit, 225 Santa Monica Blvd. Santa Monica. 310-656-9800.
