Ramen California

Ramen California

WHY A new, radical wave of ramen that fuses Japanese tradition with Californian innovation. WHAT Ramen California sprang from the mind of Shigetoshi Nakamura, a Japanese ramen prodigy who has taken on the task of reinventing the noodle soup. Indeed, diners should be advised to abandon all previous ramen knowledge—Nakamura’s noodle soups are all about [...]

Art Walk, EAT Talk

Art Walk, EAT Talk

Editor Colleen Dunn Bates will be joined by contributing editors Jean Barrett, Jenn Garbee and Joseph Shuldiner, who will share their food-lover’s favorites [...]

Ortolan

Ortolan

WHY Pause-worthy haute French dishes from Christopher Emé that tend to elicit comments like wow and what was that exactly?—like the escargot with lettuce emulsion and parmesan crust. If you can handle the investment, it’s worth tasting Emé’s culinary explorations. WHAT The elegant, special-occasion setting is, refreshingly, one of the few places you’ll see more [...]

Jongewaard’s Bake N Broil

Jongewaard’s Bake N Broil

WHY To sit at the counter and revel in a perfect pot pie and, to keep the theme going for dessert, a piece of brownie pie with vanilla ice cream. If you can’t stay, pick up some frozen pot pies to take home, and for your next summer party, make sure to order the French [...]

Happy Houring on Off-Ramp

Happy Houring on Off-Ramp

This week’s EatLA/Off-Ramp collaboration took place in a capacious booth at South Pasadena’s Barkley, a happy-hour fave of host John Rabe’s, even though he’s a few decades younger than the average regular. Why? For generously poured, $3 well cocktails (nothing muddled or infused, mind you) with a free daily nosh, perhaps cheese-drenched nachos. What’s not [...]

Lotería Grill Studio City

Lotería Grill Studio City

WHY To feast on our favorite Farmers Market Mexican fare without having to go over the hill—and with margaritas, to boot. WHAT Chef Jimmy Shaw of the original Lotería Grill in the Farmers Market and its successful spinoff in Hollywood has settled on the second floor of the strip mall at the corner of Ventura [...]

Hudson House Bar

Hudson House Bar

WHY A gastropub without inflated prices and a good happy hour weekdays from 5 to 7 p.m. WHAT We come here for the sharable bar bites, especially the crispy beer-batter-fried cauliflower and $4 buckets of the same fantastic sweet potato and French fries served at Beechwood (same chef/owners), as well as heartier fare like the [...]

Warszawa

Warszawa

WHY In winter, sustaining pierogis, stroganoff and heavenly hot dried plums wrapped in bacon; in summer, a table on the pretty patio and a bowl of the best cold borscht you’ve ever had, at least in Southern California. WHAT L.A.’s longstanding center of Polish culinary life continues to thrive in this charming cottage on not-so-charming [...]

At Last Café

At Last Café

WHY Simple Americana with refined flair. WHAT At Last may be tiny, but it has quickly become one of the most popular neighborhood spots in a city full of them. Behind its success is American cooking that capably twists the classics. At lunch, expect good sandwiches headlined by a charred burger and a vegetarian option [...]

City Sip

City Sip

WHY ‘Wine for the people’ (or so says its slogan), in working-people’s Echo Park, with affordable tastings, charcuterie and small plates, as well as fun wine classes. WHAT A groovy wine bar for an increasingly groovy neighborhood, City Sip is part wine bar and part wine school. Six nights a week, owner Nicole Daddio pours [...]
