Netty's calls it quits

creditThe slogan at Netty's is "serving Silverlake before it was hip." Well, no longer. Netty's, which brought takeout "California Comfort Food" to the corner of Silver Lake Boulevard and Effie in 1987, has been sold. Netty promises to put some of her customers' favorites — like warm seafood salad with sea scallops, shrimp, toasted almonds and orange wedges and her drunken shrimp — into a cookbook. The restaurant is in transition to becoming reservoir, the kitchen of chefs Gloria Felix and Elizabeth Belkind. Felix has cooked at Vida, Lucques, AOC, Jar, and Grace and was executive chef of Silver Lake's Blair Restaurant. Belkind began her career at Campanile, and is the former pastry chef at Grace. Flackage:

Reservoir plans a grand opening celebration in early spring. Starting January 4, 2007 and during the transition from Netty's, the restaurant will feature a small breakfast and lunch menu, in addition to its already popular Sunday brunch. Once remodeling and permits are complete, reservoir will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner six days a week, using fresh, seasonal ingredients and a California rustic style menu. The two new owners will also offer fresh morning pastries and grow their own herbs in the rear garden.
