New Restaurant Coming to SFV - Ava or something like that?

pizzaforbreakfast May 31, 2008 02:01 PM

Please help me solve this mystery. Somewhere (could even have been Chowhound), I read about a restaurant from a respected chef opening in the near future in the San Fernando Valley. Sherman Oaks or environs. I think the working name was Ava but I could have that wrong. Wasn't a big name chef but it was someone with an impressive enough background. (I am not talking about the guy from Literati II fyi who is supposedly looking for an 818 space.) If anyone can help me out, I would be most grateful. Thank you!

    Could it be Palate in Glendale?


    Or Third and Olive in Burbank?

      Per Eater, possibly Eva from Mark Gold?

        Doubt gold will open Eva in Sherman Oaks in Spring, maybe not even in 2008 at all.

        Just heard Gold on KCRW this morning, and was wondering if anyone had heard about an exact location for his new place. He said Beverly, east of Fairfax. I'm in that neighborhood, and I'm really curious... Thanks in advance.

          According to the LA Times from last month, with Hatfield's moving to the old Red Pearl Kitchen location on Melrose, Mark Gold is in escrow to open EVA in their former space on Beverly:
