Scene Setter: A scientific look at the Lab Gastropub
OK, maybe I exaggerated just a little bit. This story about the Lab, which ran in today's Calendar section, is about as scientific as, well, a beaker full of beer. But it is a closer look than we've done before (like we put the Lab under a microscope).
Of particular note is the fact that University of Southern California Hospitality is working tirelessly to create a bona-fide "Restaurant Row," on Figueroa just off-campus. With McKay's and Rosso Pizzeria already in the mix, it will be interesting to see what director of hospitality Scott Shuttleworth (who was the former director of operations for SBE's Restaurant Group), will come up with next.
