Z Robata on Wilshire in WLA now "Bar Food"

Rode by this morning on my bicycle very early and noticed that the old Z Robata adjacent to Amadine Bakery - just west of Bundy (which someone recently reported to have closed) has reopened with a big sign that says "Bar Food" (hopefully that is not its actual name) and "Grand Opening" and something on there about "free hot dogs" too. Anyone have any more detailed information information?

  1. I saw this too. It looked kind of sad to me. I got the vibe they're trying to get rid of their food before folding the place for good, but I missed the "Grand Opening" sign. Frankly, I'd prefer to see a serious coffee house like Funnel Mill move into the space now that Cafe Balcony down on Santa Monica Blvd has closed.

      I just drove by this weekend and noticed that Balcony had closed. So sad. I really liked that place and they had free wifi...

    2. Yes, it's open. Everything's under $10, with 12 beers on tap. Wine & beer only for now. Some posts on Eater LA say it's decent, but still working out kinks. Will let you know next time I can go.

        Thanks for the update. What is the actual name of the place?

            Another ungoogleable name. Idiots.
