Taste of the Eastside: Let the Season of Good Eating Begin

Taste of the Eastside: Let the Season of Good Eating Begin

There are no snappy sayings about a grey sky start to the  month of May (although we’d opt for summer garden bounty in June). No matter; the perfect way to put some Spring in your May Day step is to snap up tix to the second annual Taste of the Eastside taking place this Sunday, May [...]

Six, The

Six, The

WHY With its chill vibe and entertaining concept—six choices in each category (appetizers, sides, entrées), six brews on tap and six wines by the glass—the Six fills a gaping need in the Overland-Pico neighborhood, where the mall overwhelms sidewalk life. WHAT This café-pub is a relaxed but confident departure for owners Will Karges and Jake [...]

What?!?! Noisy Restaurants in L.A.

What?!?! Noisy Restaurants in L.A.

On the most recent Eat LA on Off-Ramp, we focused on LOUD—places where the food’s good, the décor is smashing, but the noise level is on a par with Runway 24 at LAX. Does too much sound ruin an otherwise good meal? Or does it make it even better? And how do restaurateurs deal with [...]

The Weekend Go Go: Comedy Shorts, Grimm World, Snap Flash

Go Go’ers, April showers bring…wetness.  Then there will be sunshine.  The May flowers may or may not happen but the last weekend of April will. Plan accordingly. A Buttload of Belly Laughs Is web-trolling for laughs your favorite activity?  Do you have the attention span of a gnat?  Have you tried to register “Funny or [...]

Golden State, The

Golden State, The

WHY Locally sourced foods meet excellent beers at this casual Fairfax café. WHAT A minimalist ode to the joy of pairing craft brews—mostly from the Golden State (that’s California for you newcomers)—with food from the state’s purveyors, including Scoops’ unexpected ice cream flavors (including beer- and wine-inspired tastes), Let’s Be Frank dogs and sausages, and [...]

Hostaria del Piccolo

Hostaria del Piccolo

WHY Because you can snack on squid-ink tagliolini and romanesco pizza at 3:30 in the afternoon. WHAT This casual spinoff of Piccolo in Venice may be a lot less expensive, but it has the same authentic culinary bent—think veal tongue in tuna sauce and baccala-filled ravioli. An upmarket pizza list of sauced and unsauced varieties [...]

Mas Malo

Mas Malo

WHY A multi-purpose, festive Mexican spot with killer tequila selections in Downtown’s cocktail gulch. The downstairs rec room is fab for private parties. WHAT Silver Lake favorite Malo has spawned a bigger Downtown sister location in a cavernous and often deafeningly loud historic jewelry store. Hide out in the ’70s flashback basement lounge, or sip [...]

LudoBites

LudoBites

WHY You never know where it’ll pop up or what’s on the menu, and that’s the fun of it. WHAT Good luck getting a reservation at L.A.’s (and now the nation’s) premiere pop-up restaurant. (So many people want in, the online reservation system usually crashes soon after it opens.) Ludovic Lefebvre is a classically trained [...]

Mercado Buenos Aires

Mercado Buenos Aires

WHY Excellent and authentic Argentinean classics: empanadas, milanesa, white fish, huge platters of sizzling meat, mashed potatoes and bread pudding, all at more than reasonable prices. WHAT At this quirky café in the middle of a deli and meat market, patrons cheer their soccer team on TV or simply kibitz while munching on sandwiches slathered [...]

Santa Monica Certified Farmers’ Market: Main Street

Santa Monica Certified Farmers’ Market: Main Street

WHY Kids’ amusements, live music, great people-watching and very good produce. WHAT This sibling of the famous Arizona Avenue market is the social event of the week in south SanMo, where neighbors meet and families shop. It may seem to be more about the face-painting and music, but there’s also some terrific food from the [...]
