Rahel Ethiopian Veggie Cuisine

Rahel Ethiopian Veggie Cuisine

WHY Hearty stews made from chickpeas and lentils accompany plenty of vegetable side dishes, like greens with garlic or tomatoes with green pepper, while the fluffy injera bread adds healthy touches like flax, sunflower seeds and sesame. Flaxseed and barley also make appearances in smoothie-like drinks. WHAT Most of the Ethiopian restaurants on Fairfax serve [...]

Fogo de Cha‹o

Fogo de Cha‹o

WHY When you’re starving, celebrating and have $55 to blow on a single dinner, not counting drinks, tax and tip (or dessert, but you won’t have room for it anyway). WHAT Of Southern California’s several churrascarias, none has been more successful than this grand temple of meat, where spits of lamb, beef, pork and chicken [...]

The Weekend Go Go:  Arroyo Arts Collective 20th Annual Discovery Tour + Ms. Go Go Regrets

Go Go’ers, this weekend is the official calm before the holiday storm.  What’s the best way to soothe your already-turkey-stressed soul?  Seeing  beautiful, beautiful art! It’s also the perfect insider L.A. activity to entertain visiting art fans as well as  (too) early-in-town Lookie Lou relatives. You may have one or two of those. Over 100 NELA artists [...]

Little Next Door

Little Next Door

WHY Rustic pastries and breads complement the pâtés and terrines, jewel-like salads, imaginative sandwiches and savory tarts. WHAT Gold-framed mirrors, cobalt-blue walls and a marble bar give this Parisian-style shop/café a glamorous atmosphere. Carefully chosen beers and wines, foodie gifts and house-made jams round out the collection of spiffy eat-in or takeout dishes. WHO French [...]

Al & Bea’s

Al & Bea’s

WHY A basic place for basic food: L.A. burritos that are cheap, juicy and delicious. WHAT For decades, this utilitarian stand has served as a hub of Boyle Heights life. Located near Mariachi Plaza, the Metro station and Hollenbeck police station, it’s where everyone in the ‘hood goes for a burrito, to eat here or [...]

Porky’s BBQ

Porky’s BBQ

WHY Top-notch pulled pork, plus other solid barbecue standards. WHAT Descended from the now-shuttered Porky’s in Inglewood, this Long Beach rib joint stepped right into the region’s relative barbecue void, offering hefty ribs, crisp fried chicken, worthy brisket and its signature dish, pulled pork. Unlike the wispy, flavorless strands of meat found at other spots, [...]

La Vie

La Vie

WHY  Tasty and affordable French cuisine housed in a friendly restaurant run by a Vietnamese family. WHAT  Classics like coq au vin, sirloin steak with three-peppercorn sauce, and garlic-encrusted roasted rack of lamb (pictured here) are well executed; each is accompanied by fresh seasonal vegetables, salad, and the daily soup. Hidden in an unassuming strip mall, [...]

Red White + Bluezz

Red White + Bluezz

WHY The menu focuses mainly on updated American classics, and includes a wide selection of artisanal cheeses and charcuterie for sampling with the wines. WHAT Quality live jazz is at the heart of this candlelit bistro, but the surprise is how good the food is, too. Try the Snake River Farms Kobe beef burger with [...]

Intelligentsia Venice Coffeebar

Intelligentsia Venice Coffeebar

WHY So you can be greeted by your own personal barista. WHAT When this offshoot of the Chicago-by-way-of-Silver-Lake coffeehouse opened on Abbot Kinney, you’d have thought the Obamas themselves were pulling espressos from the Synesso machines. Coffee geeks walk into this light-filled industrial space and begin hyperventilating at the sight of the Mazzer grinders and [...]
