Eat-LA


Bistro LQ

Bistro LQ

WHY Because the cooking of one of L.A.’s most talented and inventive chefs finally has the setting and service it deserves. WHAT The late Mimosa is now a small, chic dining room with artful lighting, abstract paintings and a fleet of handsome French and Latino waiters. It really feels like Paris—21st-century Paris, that is. Chef/owner [...]

And Now, a Pizza Rant

And Now, a Pizza Rant

I hope you’ll agree with me here: Anyone who pays attention to food trends in LA knows that more and more gourmet pizza places have been popping up, and around them there grows a greater and greater reverence for His Holiness, the Brick Pizza Oven. Read the Full Story at Eat: Los Angeles

Proof Bakery

Proof Bakery

WHY Sophisticated pastries, excellent coffee and fresh bread in a fast-transforming neighborhood. WHAT Though owner Na Young Ma is a Glendale native, Proof has a Parisian look, with marble-topped tables and chocolate-colored walls. Pastries strike the right balance between rustic and refined and rank with some of the best in the area. All things meringue [...]

Little Dom’s

Little Dom’s

WHY Red-sauce Italian, served with modern flair and a wink of the eye. The three-course Monday Night Supper is a steal at $15, with house wine for just $10 a bottle. WHAT A lot of people consider this handsome, booth-lined, retro trattoria to be a great bargain, which we don’t quite get—starters are $10 to [...]

Congregation Ale House

Congregation Ale House

WHY Lively sudes and modernized pub grub. WHAT Congregation may take its religious shtick too far—stained glass windows, Catholic school uniforms, Monday ‘mass’—but it’s one of Long Beach’s essential beer bars, with a commendable list of Belgian and craft brews. The menu presents done-up pub classics like a pork and goat cheese sausage sandwich, grilled [...]

Natura Bar

Natura Bar

WHY Homemade ice creams, juices and smoothies in Oaxacan flavors rarely found in L.A. WHAT The scions of Guelaguetza founder Fernando Lopez opened this little shop next to the original location of the now-famous Oaxacan restaurant. Using organic produce, they make fresh-squeezed jugos (juices) and licuados (shakes) in combos like jicama, mango and papaya. The [...]

Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.

Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.

WHY Because Los Angeles needs better bagels, and it needs more of them. WHAT Backed by talk show maven Larry King, tthis small franchised chain has a gimmick: real Brooklyn water. The bulky bagels are boiled in it, making them dense and chewy in the best possible way. You can also make your own egg [...]

Churros Calientes

Churros Calientes

WHY Do one thing and do it well. In this case, it’s churros. WHAT The food is a wash, but the churros, served warm from the fryer, are to die for. These are nothing like the Mexican churros that dominate L.A.—these are Spanish churros. They’re smaller, denser and more crisp, served with toppings and fillings [...]

Brouhaha in a Backyard Bakery

Brouhaha in a Backyard Bakery

A while back, Eat LA’s Miles Clements interviewed acclaimed backyard breadmaker Mark Stambler for EatLA on Off-Ramp. Meanwhile, Eat LA’s Jenn Garbee wrote about Stambler for the Los Angeles Times. Alas, all this media attention made the county pay attention, and it promptly shut down the Los Feliz home operation. Off-Ramp host went back to [...]

Food + Lab

Food + Lab

WHY Fantastic sandwiches, excellent espresso, lovely patios both front and back, and all sorts of good food to take home and pretend you made. WHAT Nino Linsmayer and his chef mom, Esther, built a successful business as caterers before opening this café and gourmet-to-go market, so they came into the business already knowing how to [...]
