What Became of Dos Arbolitos?

  • d

Anyone know if this Mexican restaurant (previously located at Parthenia and Woodley in Van Nuys) has reopened, as promised, in another location?

  1. The dudes at Dos did claim they were going to open in another location, but so far they have not been spotted. It's a great loss: the smoked tomato salsa was one of the best in the city, and the costillitas de puerco en salsa verde were dynamite.

      My friend and I used to hang out at D.A. Soon after they closed (supposedly, solely because of a lost lease), we saw a note on the door that included a phone number to call for information. It was a law office that didn't seem to know anything about the place. It's a big loss.

        D.A was very good. Another nearby place that you may want to check out is El Gallo Giro on Roscoe and Van Nuys. It's an enormous place with a bakery, juice bar, and a fairly large menu-cafeteria style. Cheap and most everything I've had kicks ass.
