Steven Arroyo revamps, renames Bicentennial 13
Steven Arroyo is giving the Cobras & Matadors-adjacent wine shop Bicentennial 13 a new look and a new name. Beginning next month, the tapas impressario will debut his latest concept: an upscale grab 'n' go shop dubbed Potato Chips.
Potato Chips will serve up salads, sandwiches and more to-go items in addition to carefully selected wines and beers. Arroyo told us over the weekend that he hopes to have the small shop open by the end of November. Design changes are still being worked out, but the centerpiece of Bicentennial's new look will be a massive vintage sign that Arroyo just bought, which spells out "Potato Chips" in cursive script. (The sign is currently sitting on the floor of the cozy shop.)
Potato Chips, 7613 Beverly Blvd., (323) 931-4995.
