Unnamed New Bar on Melrose?

Does anyone know the phone number or cross street of the new bar on Melrose near The Village Idiot? For the life of me, I can't think of the street it's on and obviously, as it's yet unnamed, Google is not being of much use. Any help would be much appreciated!!

Miracle Fruit (NY Times) in LA??

So the NY Times Dining section ran a piece on the so-called Miracle Fruit today:

Does anyone know if this is sold fresh anywhere in LA?

Angeleno 'hound needs to narrow down NYC list

So, I have not been back to New York in the last year, and am having some trouble narrowing down where I should go when I'm in town for a coming long weekend. I'm looking for about three dinner places for a mid-sized group and maybe two or three brunch/lunch choices. I had long ago made a dinner reservation at A Voce, but am faced with some reluctance by dining companions who think it will be very stiff. Ideally the location will be south of Midtown. So the dinner choices at this point seem to be: A Voce, Resto, Momofuku Ssam, Maremma, Fig and Olive, Waverly Inn, P*ong, Budakkan (reluctantly).

I need help, either with other suggestions or with a narrowing down of the ones that I have. Somewhere enjoyably un-stuffy/decently hip but with serious food; in other words, something that will keep the scene-y friends as happy as the foodies. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
