In business since 1959, they closed last December due
to a large increase in rent.
Yesterday on their Facebook page they posted this update:

The Whisperer, Echo Park's New Spot

In the space that many years ago was home to Phoenix Bakery,
and previously was Red Hill,
A new and beautifully remodeled Lounge with food has opened.
We tried it last night, and they are doing some great things with comfort food.

First off, the Wine and Beer list are well thought out with an extremely 
nice selection. A nice mix of Italian, Spanish and California wines, by
the bottle or glass. Also a large selection of beers on tap.
We tried the Patti Melt and the Ribs which were delicious.
The sauce for the ribs was not your typical barbecue sauce, it was a
blend of spices that really went well with the nice portion of pork ribs.
The Patti Melt was a blend of Brisket, Chuck and Sirloin, all I can
say is Wow!
The room has a very cool vibe to it, and the atmosphere is sophisticated
and fun.

The decor was well thought out, even the outside patio has been redone.

I can't wait to go back and try some of the other dishes.
If you are in the area, it's a nice place to check out.

The Whisperer
1325 Echo Park Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90026
Open until 12:30 a.m.
