ECHO PARK: As previously mentioned, Top Cheffer Alex Eusebio's former vehicle, Restaurant 15, had its last night this past Saturday. According to the Eastider LA blog, Charles Kelly and Bill Didonna took over on Sunday and plan to reopen this Friday (yes, in three days, October 31): "All they have to do is finish painting, finalize the menu, train the staff, find their food vendors and figure out who to call to pick up the trash in time to reopen by Halloween." So scary! Plans to call the new bistro the Allston Yacht Club were scrapped (should make some of our commenters happy), so they're keeping the name 15.
