Here’s what a few local chefs and sommeliers are popping open at midnight. Hitachino Nest White Ale, Kiuchi Shuzou Sona’s chef de cuisine Kuniko [...]

Nicole’s Warehouse Sale

Nicole’s Warehouse Sale

South Pasadenans and Francophiles from all over L.A. know Nicole’s Gourmet Foods as the charmant patio café and gourmet market — but there’s a whole other side of the business that most people never see.

We’re sorry to report that our favorite semi-underground restaurant, Freight Foods at Zanzabelle in Silver Lake, is shutting down after its final dinners this weekend. But we’re happy to report that it’s for a good reason: proprietors Matt and Jackie Roberts (well, Jackie) are about to have a baby. Their final three-course prix-fixe meal will [...]
