littlesisterThe people at Little Sister should be opening up their new 7th Street restaurant any day now.  The popular Manhattan Beach restaurant  is taking over the old Gaji space at 523 W. 7th Street between Barrel Down Beer Hall and Q Sushi.  DTLAexplorer first told you about Little Sister’s DTLA offspring back in April.  The restaurant with a pan-Asian or neo-Vietnamese inspired menu was originally expected to open in late spring.  The Instagram account says, “We open in late September 2015” and a posting by chef Tin Vuong says, “Coming Soon to DTLA.”  So, I think it’s fair to say it’s opening any day now.
