Can two separate businesses in Los Angeles, CA have the same DBA?

This might be a confusing question, so I apologize in advance!

Location: Los Angeles, CA Type of business: Food and Drink

Let's just say my business name is "Food + Drink". I opened "Food + Drink LLC" in April 2015 and started a food truck.

At the beginning of 2017, we decided to expand to a brick and mortar. My accountant suggested we create a separate entity to keep things separate so we created "Food + Drink INC".

Our DBA, aka fictitious business name, "Food + Drink" is currently registered under the LLC. Ideally, we would want the same DBA for our brick and mortar. But since it's technically under a different entity, how would I go about this?

Thanks!
