Window Stickers Popping Up

Window Stickers Popping Up

Happy red stickers recently went out to every business listed in EAT: Los Angeles 2011, and we’ve been getting photos from some proprietors as they place them in their windows. Here’s the first batch that arrived—they show the diversity of the resources for food lovers that we provide. If you see the sticker, it means [...]

Cabbage Patch

Cabbage Patch

WHY Beautiful salads, bowls and sandwiches made from ingredients as fresh, locally sourced and organic as possible, served in a bright, cheerful café. WHAT Handsome young owner Samir Mohajer was chef at Rustic Canyon for two years, and he’s brought the same devotion to high-quality ingredients seen at his old home to this casual, order-at-the-counter [...]

The Park

The Park

WHY The excellent ‘game night’ picnic boxes were designed for nearby Dodger Stadium, but they’re available in all seasons and also work great for the Bowl, office meetings or even a take-home supper. WHAT One of the leaders of the Echo Park boom (it’s not evil gentrification, it’s a renaissance!), this starkly stylish café offers [...]

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

The worlds of art and food will collide on Thursday evening when some of the EAT: Los Angeles team will be appearing at Metropolis Books as part of the monthly Art Walk. 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 [...]
