Using two sources they say are reliable, Eater Chicago is reporting Schwa owner/chef Michael Carlson was in LA last weekend, possibly scouting locations for a restaurant.

Eater Chicago stressed this doesn't necessarily mean Carlson is shuttering his restaurant again for a move west. Carlson has been his usual hard-to-reach self regarding the rumors.

We're having a little chuckle right now at the prospect of Carlson running two restaurants at his whim, confirming and canceling reservations at the last minute.
