Owners Grant Smillie and David Combes of The Botanical Group—of E.P. & L.P. fame—are bringing S.O.L. to DTLA’s forthcoming Halo development in The Wells Fargo Center, according to a Conditional Use Beverage (CUB) application filed with the City for the restaurant.

A spokesperson with Halo confirmed the news in an email to What Now Los Angeles (WNLA) Wednesday saying S.O.L.’s plans to open in the downtown mixed-use center had not yet been announced. S.O.L. did not immediately respond to WNLA’s request for comment but the website for the restaurant’s parent company states “S.O.L. DTLA is set for a Q1 debut in 2021.”

S.O.L. would occupy suite 217 which boasts 1,850 square feet of interior space with 37 seats and a 103-seat, 1,100-square-foot outdoor patio. Its proposed hours of operation are from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. daily, according to the CUB.

S.O.L.’s menu—all-day breakfast, salads, sandwiches, and plates—was created by Botanical Group Culinary Director Monty Koludrovic. It combines “trademark Australian café flavors with Californian produce resulting in a healthy, tasty, and interesting menu utilizing the abundance of local farmers markets produce and relationships with growers and suppliers we have formed during our last five years in Los Angeles,” according to the restaurant’s website.

S.O.L. would join a previously announced list of restaurant tenants including Shake Shack, Trejo’s Tacos, and Green Thing, all of which are still on track to open in Halo by late-2020, early-2021, the spokesperson said.
