Talking Gastropubs on Off-Ramp

The EAT: Los Angeles team is happy to announce that we’ll be regulars on KPCC’s show Off-Ramp, starting with my appearance this weekend to talk about the increasing (and welcome) number of gastropubs in Los Angeles.

As much as we love marshmallow Peeps (they are awfully cute), we’ve often wondered when we’ll finally find the handmade chocolates, spring recipes and multi-colored farm-fresh eggs that the Easter bunny has picked out just for us. Right. Good thing it’s easy to gather goodies and make our own baskets. Kulich from Stolichnaya Bakery This [...]

Plonk Wine Merchants

Plonk Wine Merchants

There’s a new wine shop in town — at least as far as your credit card bill is concerned. Plonk Wine Merchants may not have a Home Depot charge account, but owner Etty Lewensztain has racked up her share of start-up costs in web design and high-speed internet charges.
