Eva

Eva

WHY For talented, gregarious chef Mark Gold, and for the Sunday brunch and dinner. WHAT Cozy, minimalist Eva has two faces: the more restrained cuisine, such as udon noodles with clams and scallops served at lunch and dinner most days, and the heartier Sunday dinners. The Sunday four-course prix-fixe meals are a great value, with […]

McCall’s Meat and Fish

McCall’s Meat and Fish

WHY An artisan shop that’s opening our eyes to new cuts. WHAT The butcher case offerings read like a fine dining restaurant menu: Angus beef, Kurobuta pork, farmer-direct chicken and duck. Don’t miss the well-edited fish selection, which is tweeted weekly. We love the quality and the mom ‘n pop vibe from the chef-owners; of […]

Faith Healing, Crafting with Cocktails, and a Watery Wonderland

You’re SO in the swing of the season, Go Go’ers. You’ve draped a little tinsel on your sleigh-riding boots.  (Red and green, natch.) You’ve refined your Merry Martini.

Fuego

Fuego

WHY Upscale Mexican cuisine with a beautiful Long Beach view. WHAT A centerpiece of the redesigned and rebranded Hotel Maya, Fuego delivers a Mexican menu focused on coastal cooking. That translates to dishes like citric ceviches of shrimp and lobster scooped up with plantain chips, Yucat‡n-style pork two ways (presented as an achiote-glazed fillet and […]

Eagle Rock Brewery

Eagle Rock Brewery

WHY A place to taste made-in-L.A. beer right at the source.

Laugh, Out-Of-Town Relatives, Laugh!

Laugh, Out-Of-Town Relatives, Laugh!

If only certain relatives were in the Foreign Legion…. Let’s face it, Go Go’ers. When it comes to holidays, even the happiest families can crack under pressure like a wishbone in the hands of kids high on pumpkin nog and whipped cream. Sad but true. Luckily, the following forays into death, comedy, and familial dysfunction […]

Delphine

Delphine

WHY South of France—inspired dining morning, noon or night in a pretty Côte d’Azur setting. WHAT Hollywood’s glitzy W Hotel may seem an improbable place to find a bright brasserie seemingly transplanted from Cannes, but this bustling, white-tiled, marble-floored spot is good for business meetings, visitors touring Hollywood and post-clubbing late meals. The menu is […]
