In case you missed our recent Saucey Facebook posts (seriously, keep up by checking out OurVenturaBlvd FB page between blogs), two popular restaurants have just opened new franchises in our neighborhood: Silver Lake’s Hyperion Public opened a new location Monday in Studio City in the Ventura Boulevard space formerly occupied by The King’s Head.
