Mitla News: Bricia Lopez to create menu with her mother; Josh Gil out

Bricia Lopez
Josh Gil is no longer the associated with Mitla, the new restaurant that will be launching shortly in the former Gueleguetza location in Palms.  Gil, who had cooked with the Supper Liberation Front and did two Mitla dinners at Test Kitchen, las left the project and owner Bricia Lopez and her mother are currently developing the menu.  Mitla will still be serving Oaxacan food with a "Bricia" twist, so expect moles to be part of the plan.

In other Mitla news, Lopez announced last night that Ricki Kline, best known for designing Cedd Moses's bars such as Seven Grand and The Varnish, has come aboard and will be consulting on the design of the new restaurant. She was tight-lipped about the specific design elements, but said that Kline has a great eye and she is very excited to be working with him.

The opening date has been pushed back. As soon as I have a new date, I will share it.

Mitla: 11127 Palms Blvd., (just East of Sepulveda).
