Wholesome Blends Has Closed, The Whole Bowl Trailer Has Moved (Twice!)

After having breakfast at Jim and Patty’s and searching for an elusive geocache in Rose City Park, I headed home down Sandy Blvd and was startled to see that Wholesome Blends (4615 NE Sandy Blvd) had closed! The Whole Bowl trailer that was on the property was also gone, moving further into the Hollywood District, but is now back on Sandy.

First Look: Sizzle Pie Hollywood

Sizzle Pie's sandwich board

When they mean open late, they mean open late—til 4am Friday and Saturday, 3am the rest of the week.

Yesterday was the first day Sizzle Pie Hollywood was open (soft opening), so we headed over for some slices—and to check out the space. Turns out they didn’t do any kind of major overhaul, but the place feels more spacious, fresher, neater. I was told that it took about a month and half to get it all spruced up.

Reo’s Ribs—all boarded up but will open eventually.

This week I read an update on Reo’s Ribs by the Hollywood Star. They report that “plans are underway” to restore the building that was home to the most aromatic restaurant in the neighborhood. I miss the smell of barbecue as I walk by, and I feel bad that the building burned and forced Reo to temporarily stop operations this past May. So I’m heartened by the news that he’ll be back and that progress on repairing the building is going well. Continue reading “Good News: Reo’s Ribs Will Return”
