Well, well, well, Look like Moby is back and with a vengeance! His plant-based vegan restaurant “Little Pine” is finally under construction with a debut date just later this summer. In addition to its celebrity roots, Little Pine’s kitchen will be overseen by Anne Thornton, the Food Network regular who also hosts Dessert First. Previously employeed at The Wavery Inn, Thornton will be leading Little Pine’s team in creating all-vegan plates with seasonal twists and will also feature some serious retail including meatless cookbooks and a number of artisianal food products. Little Pine’s menu will initially serve dinner before expanding into all day service with the eventually addiction of brunch and breakfast components.  Get ready for some summer inspired plates like mushroom leek pot pie, cauliflower steak and even lemon mint pea pâté! We can’t wait to finish off this summer with Silverlandia’s newest addition! Little Pine 2870 Rowena Ave. Los Angeles,...

The line started forming around 2 pm, hours before opening, and stayed long all night, with crowds coming through even in the small hours (and everyone allowed to take pictures just this once). Here’s a look at all those devotees, in roughly chronological order, and you can take our virtual tour of the early-1920s Hollyhock right over here. The house will be open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am to 4 pm from now on, with a $7 free for adults....
