The Six

The Six

WHY Because there’s nothing like a comfortable neighborhood spot for a beer and weeknight dinner with family and friends. The Six, with its entertaining concept — six choices in each menu category (appetizers, sides, entrees, etc.), six rotating brews on tap and six wines by the glass —  fills a gaping need in the Overland-Pico neighborhood, [...]

Food Trucks at the Mall

Food Trucks at the Mall

Gourmet food truck confabs are increasingly popular, but not all are created equal — and the gathering headed for the Americana at Brand on March 30th is better than the norm. Some of our very favorites will be there from 6 to 9 p.m., including the Buttermilk Truck, Komodo, the Grilled Cheese Truck and Frysmith. [...]

Easter Goodies for Grown-Ups (Us!)

Easter Goodies for Grown-Ups (Us!)

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 [...]

Cart for a Cause Hits the Streets

Cart for a Cause Hits the Streets

It’s a natural. Tomorrow, the Cart for a Cause, the country’s first philanthropic food truck, serves its first chef-made lunches here in L.A. Tuesdays through November, catch this big red food truck and you can buy a great $10 lunch (includes beverage!) prepared by one of L.A.’s finest chefs. Added value: $6.50 of that goes [...]

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. After ten years [...] Read the [...]

Rosso’s Corkage Guide

And here are a few notables from the list whose corkage fees are under $10 — or even free! Bottega Louie (free) Café Bizou ($2) [...]

A Big Ol’ Slab of Treat

A Big Ol’ Slab of Treat

The world’s largest Rice Krispie Treat — a 10,460-pound creation that seemed spawned from Willy Wonka’s factory — came to be on Sunday on the field outside the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge. A new TLC show called Mega Bites, hosted by San Diego restaurateur and Top Chef season-three finalist Brian Malarkey, created the treat for its pilot [...]

Lazy Ox Canteen

Lazy Ox Canteen

WHY To pretend you’re in Barcelona, or the East Village, or maybe Berkeley, if only for an evening. WHAT On an anonymous-looking block in Little Tokyo is this Downtown hot spot, where chef Josef Centeno is turning out food that will make you think you’re not in Los Angeles anymore. There’s a printed menu as [...]

Medflies: It Just Takes Two

Medflies: It Just Takes Two

Where were we? Right, Medflies. You’ve been seeing the signs of a quarantine (such as netting over produce) in farmers’ markets in Santa Monica, Culver City and adjoining areas (see my original post on the subject here). They’re not beneficial insects — they don’t pollinate fruit, they destroy it — so once their presence has [...]

Supper Liberation Front

Supper Liberation Front

Blame it on our nose-to-the-grindstone L.A. County health inspectors, who always seem to ferret out a food festival or suspicious food truck, or maybe it’s the traffic’s fault, but Los Angeles has never had its fair share of underground restaurants (we admittedly find it hard to imagine willfully eating in someone’s attic or basement after [...]
