Navito replaces Sonny’s Hideaway, at 5137 York Blvd, and was first announced in February. Nativo was targeting an opening in May but was delayed due to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. The concept has been in the works for nearly a decade, according to L.A. Taco, and would have been the owners’ third business—they closed Eagle Rock’s Craft Beer Cellar last year at the expiration of its lease.

Heading the kitchen will be Chef Danielle Duran-Zecca, previously of Union in Pasadena, which later this year will get an adjacent sister concept serving pizza. Duran-Zecca’s creations can also be found at Xelas.
