Silverlake Wine

Silverlake Wine

WHY Well-chosen selection at every price point. WHAT This female-friendly, no-attitude wine shop showcases small-production wines from all over the world. And sometimes the best wine for your occasion might be a Pacific Northwest microbrew, or even a handmade sake. Tastings are happening events; Monday brings wines paired with cheeses from the Cheese Store of [...]

The Kettle

The Kettle

WHY A 24/7 godsend for insomniacs, students and night-shifters. WHAT The food’s fine, but the real value of those woodsy-in-a-’70s-way coffee shop is that it’s open 24 hours a day, a rarity for a large, full-service restaurant anywhere in L.A., let alone a beach town. Regulars get the muffins, crabcake Benedict, burgers and egg dishes. [...]

Itzik Hagadol Grill

Itzik Hagadol Grill

Kogi BBQ

Kogi BBQ

WHY Taco trucks hit the big time when this Korean/Mexican fusion coach arrived on the scene.

The pioneer [...]

Sauce on Hampton

Sauce on Hampton

WHY Shiraz frittata, a scramble with grilled onions, roma tomatoes and turmeric; luscious breakfast sandwiches; the chopped baby spinach salad; and a turkey burger that is juicier and more flavorful than most, topped with baby spinach, sliced tomato, red onion, applewood-smoked bacon and cheddar. WHAT A teeny café with teeny tables, this spot is the [...]

Santa Monica Farmers’ Market: Main Street

Santa Monica Farmers’ Market: Main Street

WHY Kids’ amusements, live music, great people-watching and very good produce.

It may seem to be more about the face-painting and music, but there’s also some terrific food from [...]

The App Has Landed

The App Has Landed

Just in time for the new Verizon iPhone, EatLA the App has arrived. A mere 99 cents for early adopters (the price goes up to a still-modest $1.99 on 3/15), the app has all the carefully curated listings seen in the book, plus the perks of an app. The listings are searchable, sortable, and mappable, [...]

Siem Reap

Siem Reap

WHY A decades-old centerpiece of Long Beach’s Cambodia Town. WHAT A lot of heat courses through Siem Reap. Sometimes it’s a subtle, slow burn, other times it’s a fully loaded assault. Although the menu is large enough to accommodate a few Thai and Chinese offerings, the Cambodian classics are what keep this place relevant after [...]

Venokado

Venokado

WHY You need the perfect wine or the perfect gift, and you don’t have a vast budget or time to wander through a mall.

Best of the Wurst

Best of the Wurst

Don’t blame us for the bad pun—that’s thanks to pun-lover KPCC’s John Rabe, who chatted with Eat LA’s Linda Burum about LA’s best sausages as part of the regular EatLA on Off-Ramp series. The show airs Saturday, February 26th at noon and Sunday, February 27 at 7 p.m. We’ll be watching the Oscars then, so [...]
