Small Bites: Boa to open Thursday; Sona's 'Triple Threat' dinner
Boa set to open Thursday: Boa Steakhouse has relocated farther west on Sunset Boulevard to the Luckman Plaza and is scheduled to open this Thursday.

But the bar and lounge menu is new. Also of note: Happy hour is 5 to 7 p.m. 9200 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, (310) 278-2050.
'Triple Threat' dinner: A six-course tasting menu is in the works for a Zagat-presented dinner at Sona on Wednesday. Chef David Myers, guest chef Noriyuki Sugie and Sona chef de cuisine Kuniko Yagi will prepare California-Japanese dishes that feature ingredients from Chino and Kondo farms, paired with wines and sake. (See the full menu after the jump.) $95 per person; wine and sake pairings additional. Call for reservations. 401 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles, (310) 659-7708.
