The new convenient gourmet Mediterranean food concept called EJ’s Bites is set to open any day now at the corner of Olympic and Figueroa in DTLA’s South Park neighborhood. DTLAexplorer first told you about EJ’s back in June, now more than 6 months later the restaurant is about to open, although there is no official grand opening date. The restaurant’s website just reads, “Coming Soon.” A message sent to DTLAexplorer says, “We will be opening shortly. Just finishing up last minute touches.”
Here’s what we do know about the place… they will serve “fresh and healthy ingredients in a comfortable, fast casual environment.” An “express” menu has been posted over a take-out window. That menu includes 4 different pita pockets, a kids menu, sides and drinks. A recent post on the restaurant’s Facebook page touts its “soon to be famous Wow-e Bowl with marinated/roasted sliced chicken, rice, shredded lettuce, shopped cucumber/tomato, crispy garbanzo beans, chopped pickles and EJ’s special sauce.” There are also several photos of the restaurant’s interior posted on the Facebook page. Hey, EJ… hurry up… we’re hungry!
