Eat-LA


Canter’s Deli

Canter’s Deli

WHY No-nonsense deli sandwiches stacked high — don’t be afraid to get your hands messy. WHAT This L.A. landmark has been around since 1931 and is open 24 hours. The endless menu boasts breakfast food, soups and salads, but it’s the sandwiches you want, even if they are a bit pricey. It’s not quite Langer’s, [...]

EAT: LA on Off-Ramp

EAT: LA on Off-Ramp

Forgive the self-promotion, but we must report that Colleen Dunn Bates, editor of EAT: Los Angeles and Hometown Pasadena, will be on John Rabe’s show Off-Ramp on KPCC this weekend, talking a little about the new 2010 edition of EAT: Los Angeles, but more about the hows and whys of what we eat. Off-Ramp, a wry and [...]

Bouchon Beverly Hills

Bouchon Beverly Hills

WHY For a fantasy French bistro experience when your ship has come in. WHAT Chef Thomas Keller, he of the French Laundry, Per Se, Ad Hoc and the dazzling new book Ad Hoc at Home, has at last come to Los Angeles. It’s supposed to be a branch of the original Bouchon in Yountville, but [...]

The Gorbals

The Gorbals

WHY Inventive, comforting combinations that work well without being gimmicky or overpriced — the most expensive dish is $15. WHAT Helmed by Top Chef season-two winner Ilan Hall, this has been a long time coming and greatly touted. But it’s anything but flashy — a sparse, candlelit room tucked away into the aging Alexandria Hotel, [...]

Drink Beer, Do Good

Drink Beer, Do Good

A coalition of groups, including the city of Santa Monica, the Santa Monica Daily Press and the Chamber of Commerce, has joined forces to stage what’s being called the SANTA Monica Pub Crawl, a food- and fund-raising event to support the Westside Food Bank. Here’s how it will work: Volunteers (dressed as Santa, Mrs. Claus, [...]

12 Days of Bubbly

12 Days of Bubbly

The 12 days of Christmas will be celebrated with 12 days of $5 sparkling wine at Vertical Wine Bistro, the swank second-floor boîte in Old Pasadena. In-house wine expert David Haskell (they call him the “Wine Dude,” but we just can’t do that) will have two choices of quality bubbly each of the two weeks [...]

Gobi Mongolian BBQ House

Gobi Mongolian BBQ House

WHY Design-it-yourself one-bowl meals that are a couple of notches above the norm at most low-budget Mongolian barbecue joints. WHAT This style of cooking is neither Mongolian nor barbecue — it’s really a melding of Japanese teppanyaki cooking and Taiwanese flavors. Many of us Angelenos of a certain age remember the late great Col. Lee’s [...]

More Party Pix

More Party Pix

We had to share a few more photos from the great publication party for EAT: Los Angeles 2010, which you can now find at your local bookstore or market (or on Amazon). Here are a couple of links to blog reports from the Traveler’s Bookcase shindig, which was a celebration of L.A. street food featuring [...]

Santa & Sparkling Wine — For Free

Santa & Sparkling Wine — For Free

The wine bar/café call the Must in downtown L.A. has survived its first year, no mean feat in this economy, and to celebrate it’s invited Santa to visit on Saturday night. Come without your kids (this is a grown-up place) for a photo on Santa’s lap — and if you bring a donation of canned [...]

Vertical Wine Bistro Changes It Up

Vertical Wine Bistro Changes It Up

After three years, the San Gabriel Valley’s most elegant wine bar, Vertical, has changed things up. Gone are chef Sara Levine and her small-plates tasting menu; now settled  in are new chef Doug Weston and a more traditionally structured menu of modern American bistro food. Also new is operations manager David Haskell, a self-described “wine [...]
