Valentines gift ideas at Nesmon Cafe for 15% off!

Last week we reported that Osteria Coppola in Sherman Oaks has closed. Now, a new  eatery, On the  Thirty, has already leased the premises with a beer and wine license. Sounds like a sports bar, but no confirmation yet. We’ll keep you posted.

Nesmon Cafe in Sherman Oaks is offering a Valentine’s Day special through February 14,  Get  a 15% discount on all French and one -of-a-kind cake stand dishes with the purchase of a dessert. Or fill  a beautiful French heart tin box  ($20) with cookies, truffles and macarons (.75- $2.50 each). 13333 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks (just west of Fulton).

Umami will be opening in this historical Toluca Lake location

The Umami empire has started construction on another Umami  Burger in Toluca Lake in the former  Papoos Hot Dog Show that closed in August 2011 after 62 years in business.  Located across from the landmark Bob’s Big Boy, Papoos ‘structure also has historical merit.   The iconic  building will remain standing with  a good part of the signage and all.  In homage to Papoos,  Umami will be serving up hot dogs in addition to burgers and milkshakes made from LA Creamery artisan ice cream.

Hugo’s Tacos  just opened its third stand in Woodland Hills, joining Studio City and Atwater Village.  Every Wednesday is “Burrito Night” at all locations with burritos half off from 7 to 10 p.m. if you say the secret word for February — “sweetheart.” Don’t miss the Breakfast Burrito Happy Hour from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. Monday through Friday when burritos are only $3. It’s  open from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. daily.  This is becoming a busier eating area with Local Peasant ‘s second  location opening soon and Leo and Lily nearby. 22941 Ventura Blvd. Woodland Hills (between Fallbrook and Woodlake).

We  previously reported that Pedaler’s Fork in Calabasas would  open February 4, but  according to marketing director Gideon Kleinman that date has been  moved to the beginning of March. In the meantime, check out this video from the Executive Chef Dan Murray.  This farm-to-table restaurant will cater to cyclers as well as gourmands and coffee drinkers  (they’ve got Ten-Speed Coffee).

Just read this list of  ”secret menu items” on Ranker.com and had to share! Lots of fast food/ fast casual eateries, including Chipotle, Starbucks,  Jamba Juice Five Guys, In ‘N Out, Subway and more — plus, for those who travel to New York — Shake Shack!
