Rick Bayless' Big Red O on Melrose

Rick Bayless is opening up a new restaurant in my hood, West Hollywood on Melrose Ave.  I walked by it on the way to the Sunday Farmers Market this past weekend.  Red O will be opening in the space that was formerly Chocolat and before that Moustache Cafe, at 8155 Melrose Ave.

Back in January Eater LA chatted with Rick Bayless and reported that Red O was supposed to open in mid March.  Not surprising, the new opening date according to LAist is April.  From the looks of it, I'd guess June.  We'll see.

BTW, the O stands for Onion, not Oprah.

Good news! The white particle board has come down and the external structure has been revealed! I've made some snaps and posted them to my blog: http://gnoshings.wordpress.com

Thanks Lauren. I've walked by a few times and viewed the progress. Looking forward to having Rick's eats in my hood.
