Where to Tackle Football Grub

Where to Tackle Football Grub

Football fan or foe, most of us will likely end up watching at least a game or two this fall. The trick is finding a place with good food that can fuel you through overtime. Here are a few SoCal hangouts where ESPN’s GamePlan isn’t the only thing worth ordering. Hakata Sushi Yes, there are [...]

Central Park Café

Central Park Café

WHY A convenient, moderately priced café just south of the Old Town madness — with free parking! WHAT Part of a small local chain that also owns Wild Thyme, Central Park feels generic, and yet it fits the bill in many ways. The short-rib hash, Thai beef salad and brick-flattened chicken are of the moment [...]

She’ll be focusing on recipes built around fall produce, using ingredients from that morning’s market. There’ll be food to taste, recipes to learn, ideas to share and books to buy. [...]

Croatian Barbecue

Croatian Barbecue

To celebrate its third anniversary, Rosso Wine Shop on quietly hip Verdugo in Montrose is throwing a party — and it’s a deal. For $20, you’ll get to try three Croatian wines (2006 Bibich Debit Barrique, 2007 Dingac Peljesac and 2005 Dingac Postup) and dig into a Croatian-style barbecue, with whole roasted suckling pig, red [...]

Lot 44 Coffee

Lot 44 Coffee

WHY Organic, fair-trade drip coffee that’s ground and brewed to order, as well as free WiFi and plenty of seating to make use of it. WHAT In the heart of Downtown’s gallery row, this new coffee bar is full of ambition. It’s showing art in its 2,500-square foot industrial-chic space, it hires seriously schooled baristas, [...]

Happy Hours for Night Owls

Happy Hours for Night Owls

For years it seemed like the only late-night dining options in Los Angeles involved a Formica counter top and a grilled cheese. While we all love a good griddle-cooked sandwich, sometimes you have a hankering for something a little more Friday-night heels-worthy. Here are a few of our favorites; let us know of any [...] [...]

In Praise of the Established

In Praise of the Established

I tell you, being a member of the food media can get wearying. There’s a constant pressure to report on the new, the upcoming, the happening. And apparently no one got the memo about the Great Recession and its 12.2% unemployment rate, because new places are opening across L.A. at the rate of about one [...]

Dale’s Black Beer & Chocolate-Dipped Bacon: It’s Fair Time!

Dale’s Black Beer & Chocolate-Dipped Bacon: It’s Fair Time!

I love the L.A. County Fair, always have. I love the looks on city faces when they realize how big a pig really is. I love the pointlessness of putting everything on a stick, of deep frying everything you can imagine (even Pepsi). So I embarked on my yearly journey, broke friends in tow, to take [...]

Minestraio Trattoria

Minestraio Trattoria

WHY Carbs be damned; sometimes you just want a plate of delicious hot pasta at a good price. WHAT Gino Angelini’s answer to the recession, Minestraio has replaced his fancier La Terza, and the less-expensive menu features a good Caesar salad, superb eggplant parmigiana and the usual array of trattoria-style secondi (grilled sausages with potatoes, [...]

Little Saigon Tour

Little Saigon Tour

Robert Danhi, chef and author of Southeast Asian Flavors, is leading a series of tours through Little Saigon in Westminster. The first, this Saturday, focuses on the cuisine of northern Vietnam, and the 20 tour-takers will learn about — and, more importantly, taste — such dishes as banh tom co ngu (sweet potato and shrimp [...]
