FORUM SHOPS AT CAESARS — Los Angeles seafood institution Water Grill takes over the former home of Spago at the shopping center. The original location in Downtown L.A. debuted in 1989 with a raw bar, 10 types of oysters, crab cakes, sea urchin, Bay scallops, and specialty dishes such as fritto miso, shrimp and grits, ragout, and squid ink pasta, all served in an Art Deco setting. Lunch and brunch options are also on the menu. The restaurant chain from King’s Seafood Co. has four locations in California and one in Dallas. Look for a 2019 opening. Spago moves to the Bellagio this summer. [LVRJ]
