Eat-LA


Rincon Taurino

Rincon Taurino

WHY Tender al pastor with a crunchy glaze, pit-barbecued lamb and chicken on weekends, and tender but lean pierna de cerdo (pork leg), served in burritos or tortas. WHAT First-timers come for the excellent tacos and burritos, then return for the Saturday and Sunday barbacoa, whole pit-roasted lamb, served in two courses: lamb soup, followed [...]

Hatfield’s

Hatfield’s

WHY For the innovative and relatively bargain-priced $59 four-course tasting menu ($49 for vegetarians) matched with stellar sommelier Peter Birmingham’s wine pairings. WHAT Chefs Quinn and Karen Hatfield have settled beautifully into the dramatic dining room and sexy bar that once housed Citrus, and they’ve been quietly shaping this into one of L.A.’s finest restaurants. [...]

Foodie Rants, Olive Oil, Canned Beer & Campanile on Off-Ramp

Foodie Rants, Olive Oil, Canned Beer & Campanile on Off-Ramp

This weekend on Eat LA on Off-Ramp, we cover a lot of ground. Jennifer Worick, author of the new book Things I Want to Punch in the Face, rants about why she’d like to punch foodies in the face. Colleen Bates and John Rabe taste fresh, peppery olive oils with Oliana’s Randy Hernandez. Jerry Gorin [...]

Allston Yacht Club

Allston Yacht Club

WHY A smart, international wine list, tasty small plates and good-value specials. WHAT A sign if there ever was one of Echo Park’s gentrification, Allston is a small, dark, clubby place with very good wines, a full bar, tasty small-plate dishes and a couple of very nice owners who are longtime Silver Lake/Echo Park residents—but [...]

The Weekend Go Go: ARTmageddon + a Beer Bash

The Weekend Go Go: ARTmageddon + a Beer Bash

Go Go’ers, it’s finally (kind of) fall, which means the days of staggering around in a heat-stunned stupor are (almost) over and the days of staggering around in a happy, beery haze are upon us. Your hand-knitted beer Kozy is ready and waiting. Also this weekend: CARmageddon II.  You may have heard of it. Luckily, [...]

Trattoria Farfalla

Trattoria Farfalla

WHY Penne alla Norma, insalata Farfalla (a salad on a pizza crust), thin-crust pizza with pesto and goat cheese, and good (if pricey) wine by the glass. WHAT A pioneer in the makeover of Los Feliz, Farfalla has been slinging pasta and Chianti to a constant crowd of regulars for many years, and it’s every [...]

Sushi Ike

Sushi Ike

WHY Because the chefs are impeccable, the fish is fresh, and the location is…neither of those. WHAT Smooshed in a sleazy Hollywood strip mall, Sushi Ike is not a place to go for a posh night of extravagant nigiri and imported sake. This place is all about the fish, so if you’re into molecular gastronomy [...]

Java Spice

Java Spice

WHY The nasi bungkus at Java Spice is a magnificent Indonesian meal, a picnic banquet swathed in fresh-cut banana leaf that looks something like a pregnant shoe box. Inside are generous chunks of coconut-infused chicken, smoldering chile-laced beef rendang, brightly spiced jackfruit curry, chunky fish cake, tofu nuggets and a blazing scarlet sambal-topped egg, all [...]

The Weekend Go Go: So Much Beer,Laff Riot, Donut-a-thon, and John Lennon’s Typewriter

You wouldn’t know it from the weather but the end of summer is nigh. How to tell? There are enough upcoming food and  drink events to sustain a platoon of party-hearty squirrels.  (Winter. Coming.   Must. Eat. Food.) Don’t worry, Go Go’ers:  there’s a whole lot more here than nuts. Beer Wonderful Beer Here’s your [...]

Domaine LA

Domaine LA

WHY Because you’re tired of the same old, same old. WHAT Wine enthusiast Jill Bernheimer started selling wine online, then dove into retailing with this small shop, which has become a cult favorite.
