Antica Pizzeria

Antica Pizzeria

WHY Brilliantly balanced pizza with that elusive char on the underside of the crust, as well as many other worthy Italian dishes, all of which are delivered in the Marina/Venice area. WHAT Real pizza, in authentic Naples style, is crafted here by the first (and one of the only) U.S. members of the Associazione Verace [...]

Drago Ristorante

Drago Ristorante

WHY Simple, handmade and delicious trattoria fare, and fellow diners who remember what it means to dress for dinner. WHAT This showpiece of Celestino Drago’s mini-empire offers hearty regional cooking in an elegant setting. But all pretense vanishes when Celestino strolls from table to table, grinning and chatting as customers dine on dishes such as [...]

Huntington Meats & Sausage

Huntington Meats & Sausage

WHY A vast array of homemade sausages, Nancy Silverton’s hamburger blend and Wagyu (Kobe-style) beef. WHAT The Huntington sells Harris Ranch beef, American lamb and an impressive selection of pork cuts, hams, bacon, house-made sausages and such specialties as Moffett’s pot pies. The butchers give good advice on cooking and grilling techniques, too. Los Angeles [...]

Abbot’s Pizza Company

Abbot’s Pizza Company

WHY Huge slices of bagel-crust pizza to eat on the spot (the simple tomato-basil is best), or whole pizzas for takeout or delivery. WHAT The young folks just barely managing the $1,500 rent on their Venice dumps would starve if it weren’t for the constantly replenished racks of by-the-slice pizza. Eat your slice at the [...]

Buttermilk Truck

Buttermilk Truck

WHY Hawaiian-bread cinnamon french toast sticks… need we say more? WHAT Comfort food doesn’t get anymore comfortable than on the Buttermilk Truck, where the mobile kitchen dishes out breakfast sliders, fantastic homemade cake doughnut balls, bite-size buttermilk pancake balls, red velvet cupcakes and more such decadence. It all tastes just as good, if not better, [...]

Clementine

Clementine

WHY Delicious updated feel-good food, like sloppy joes, saucy BBQ pork and vegetable lasagne, to feed two people or a crowd. WHAT In addition to being one of L.A.’s more popular caterers, Annie Miler also runs this café, bakery and takeout place. Some dishes, like sandwiches and breakfast items, are served on an individual basis; [...]

Jack’s Classic Hamburgers

Jack’s Classic Hamburgers

WHY Great bacon-chili-cheeseburgers, classic burgers sparked with fresh jalapeños and slightly healthier turkey burgers (which we fatten up with bacon). WHAT In a parking lot next to the 170 Freeway is the best burger stand in the Valley, home to fresh, quality hamburgers, crispy skinny fries, good onion rings and tasty chili. 11375 Riverside Dr., [...]

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

WHY You can’t underestimate the amusement factor of seeing emaciated middle-aged Beverly Hills social X-rays being presented with massive, glistening porterhouses. WHAT Wolfgang Zwiener learned a lot of things in his decades as headwaiter at Peter Luger in New York, especially the importance of good service in an expensive steakhouse. So he has this handsome [...]

Avast, Ye Tumors!

Avast, Ye Tumors!

What do pirates, bacon-wrapped hot dogs and Adam’s Attic have in common? Normally nothing, but on May 21st, they’re coming together for an afternoon party to raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, which funds research into neurofibromatosis, nerve-damaging tumors that strike children. Tickets are a mere $25, and they include all the bacon-wrapped hot [...]
