The Weekend Go Go: Sunset Beer Floats. Eastside Handmade, Rock ‘n Juke Benefit, Grand Ole Echo

Go Go’ers, there are many situations when it’s important to hold on tight: a bar stool at 1:55 a.m., a Maserati on Mulholland Drive, and this past week on the windy streets of L.A. If you’ve survived the gale force winds of the last few days without rolling down the street like a tumbleweed, celebrate [...]

Gauchos Village

Gauchos Village

WHY One of the better-value churrascarias in town, at about $27 per person during the week and $35 on weekends, when sassy dancers entertain the crowd (we prefer the quieter weeknights, which are still not quiet). WHAT It’s a tremendously entertaining scene here, with huge family groups, waiters in gaucho pants carving meat off of [...]

Funny As in Ha Ha Are you averse to light?  Do you have a short attention span?  Do you like flickering images and the healing power of [...]

Luna Park

Luna Park

WHY Free delivery, online ordering and easy takeout of such good things as Cobb salad, grilled artichokes, mac ‘n cheese with broccoli, chic pizzas and grilled half chicken with a warm arugula salad. WHAT This shabby-chic San Francisco transplant delivers its reasonably priced, modern-American comfort food in the Miracle Mile area, and it also does [...]

Golden Triangle

Golden Triangle

WHY A longtime leader of Burmese cuisine in Los Angeles. WHAT Golden Triangle has for decades been an uptown Whittier stalwart, its Burmese food reason enough to trek to Greenleaf Avenue. And even this long into its existence, enough can’t be said of the spritely ginger salad, earthy tea leaf salad, goat curry with coconut [...]

Max’s of Manila

Max’s of Manila

WHY The chicharrón de pollo (deep-fried chicken skin) sets the gold standard. WHAT Mildly seasoned chicken, fried whole to keep it juicy, is the house specialty at this branch of the Filipino chain. You can order it spicy, too, and the palm vinegar dip that accompanies both versions is garlic-studded and terrific. 313 W. Broadway, [...]

Marmalade

Marmalade

WHY A vibrant range of prepared dishes, salads and baked goods to take out. WHAT This flagship of the Marmalade mini-empire doesn’t have the seating of its siblings but has loads of tempting choices for takeout. Salads range from herb chicken ravioli in pesto to roasted beets with oranges and candied walnuts in rosemary vinaigrette; [...]

Bistro 45

Bistro 45

WHY Exemplary wine list; creative and confident cooking. WHAT This is certainly a contender for the title of “Best Upscale Restaurant” in the San Gabriel Valley. The patio’s the place for lunch; for dinner, the suavely modern dining rooms beckon. Standouts include the superb bouillabaisse and the grilled beef tenderloin. There’s usually a bread pudding [...]

Kettle, The

Kettle, The

WHY A 24/7 godsend for insomniacs, students and night-shifters. WHAT The food’s fine, but the real value of this ’70s-woodsy coffee shop is that it’s open 24 hours a day, a rarity for a large, full-service restaurant anywhere in L.A., let alone a beach town. Regulars get the muffins, crab cake Benedict, burgers and egg [...]
