El Puerto Escondido

El Puerto Escondido

WHY Ultra-fresh Mexican-style seafood, including Happy Oysters, freshly shucked and topped with a vibrant chopped shrimp cocktail, and caldo de siete mares, a light soup generously stocked with Alaskan crab legs, mussels and shrimp. WHAT This eastside branch of the Inglewood original serves the seafood dishes of Mexico’s Pacific Coast beach towns, and while it’s [...]

Handy’s Smoke House Delicacies

Handy’s Smoke House Delicacies

WHY Seriously divine smoked beef, poultry, pork, and fish. WHAT David Handy has been perfecting his craft of smoking meat for the past 25 years, which is oh so evident after a single bite of anything off the menu. He does it all: perfectly smoked brisket, ribs, sausage, salami, pastrami, Cornish hens, ham, salmon and [...]

Taco Zone

Taco Zone

WHY Simple, perfectly grilled pork, beef and chorizo tacos. WHAT Some love the carne asada, others prefer the lengua (tongue), but all agree this truck parked outside the Vons market on Alvarado grills up some of the best meats in the area. Come anytime after 7 p.m., but expect crowds later in the evening, when [...]

The Weekend Go Go: Femme Filmers, Architectural Cans, Twitter Art and Burgers+

The Weekend Go Go: Femme Filmers, Architectural Cans, Twitter Art and Burgers+

Go Go’ers, the new year is inching into the fun zone.  Food.  Film.  Buildings made of cans. Somehow, you knew there’d be cans. Can Do, Can Do The monthly Downtown Art Walk is equal parts street party, bar hop and culture crawl.  The year’s first downtown hoedown adds a charitable component  with CanStructionLA , which is making [...]

Foundry, The

Foundry, The

WHY Because the food is much better than at most Hollywood scene restaurants. Extras are the good bar menu (tater tot fondue!) and the live jazz. WHAT Owner/chef Eric Greenspan may be rumpled, exuberant and sometimes annoyingly loud, but his cooking is elegant. He set out to create a destination restaurant that combines serious food [...]

Philippe the Original

Philippe the Original

WHY Marvelously soggy dip sandwiches (beef, lamb, pork), which Philippe’s claims to have invented. WHAT We’ve been coming to Philippe’s since we were knee-high to a wooden stool, and there’s nothing we love more than sitting on a wooden stool in this 1908 order-at-the-counter, sawdust-on-the-floor landmark. The french dips are delicious, the wine by the [...]

Pollos a la Brasa Western

Pollos a la Brasa Western

WHY Where else can you get a Peruvian-style chicken cooked over real wood in the middle of a sea of Korean eateries?; WHAT Come here for deeply flavored roast chicken that reflects the smoky flavor from cords of wood piled outside the tiny restaurant. The addictive spicy aji (garlic) sauce is the perfect foil to [...]

Father’s Office

Father’s Office

WHY A chance to decide for yourself whether this is the best burger in America. WHAT When Sang Yoon, formerly chef at Michael’s, said goodbye to haute cuisine to open a pub, he set about creating a world-class hamburger. It’s a rare, dry-aged beef patty topped with Maytag blue cheese, smoked applewood bacon and caramelized [...]

Brownstone Pizzeria

Brownstone Pizzeria

WHY Huge, floppy New York-style pies and hearty traditional pasta dishes. Eat your pizza quickly—they get soggy if they sit around, and they don’t take home well. WHAT Huge, ultra-thin-crust pizzas are served in a basic storefront setting. The pies and slices can be taken to Colorado Wine next door for a funvino con pizza [...]

The Weekend Go Go: Flash Mob Art, OC Microbrews, 50 First Jokes

New Year’s Eve.  That happened. Plus, the world didn’t end so…hurray. Yes, we’re all still exhausted from doomsday angst and subsequent, relieved partying-’til-dawn. Luckily, Ms. Go Go’s first weekend picks of 2013 are a relaxing blend of art on wheels, beer on wheels, and a lot of comics doing what they do best. Go Go’ers, you [...]
