L.A. Café to reopen July 6

L.A. CaféShuttered since March, Whitestown’s L.A. Café is slated to reopen under new management on July 6.

The new owners are Deano “Vino” Wilson, who has been a wine shop proprietor and restaurateur, and Reid Craig, formerly sous chef at Peterson’s and Eddie Merlot’s. Wilson will act as general manager, and Craig as executive chef. Front of house management will be taken care of by August Caldwell, who was general manager at The Spot, and the bar will be managed by Elvis Mires, formerly of Buca di Beppo. Food at the reopened Café will be sourced from local Indiana producers.

L.A. Café was originally opened by Larry Averitt, who owns L.A. Cycles and several properties in Whitestown, and Dan Cornelius, who got his restaurant experience at St. Elmo’s. The father and son team of Jay and Ben Leland later took over the reins until earlier this year, when they moved their operation to Carmel and reopened as Leland’s.
