Bite Bar Free Cookie Friday

Bite Bar Free Cookie Friday

A free cookie—and on a Friday, no less—sounds more like your kids’ after-school treat than a pause-worthy restaurant deal. But that cookie at the new Santa Monica lunch spot, Bite Bar and Bakery, from caterer-turned-restaurateur Elizabeth Goel, is more of a generous slice-and-share affair. Like all of the cookies, her coconut-macadamia nut-dried mango version is [...]

No Cookie Left Behind Bake Sale

No Cookie Left Behind Bake Sale

All over town, bakers are channeling their inner Betty Crockers (whether or not they don heels and aprons to cream butter and sugar) in preparation for this Sunday’s  No Cookie Left Behind Bake Sale at Scoops Gelato in East Hollywood. Its the fourth annual local version of the national Great American Bake Sale put on [...]

Between the Bread

Between the Bread

Asking who makes the best sandwich in town is the kind of loaded question that inevitably ends pretty much like the debate over whose grandma makes the best pie — there are entirely too many variations and personal biases to come to a consensus. So we’ll just say that the sandwiches that follow are ones [...]

Grilled Cheese Truck

Grilled Cheese Truck

WHY The comfort of grilled cheese with the sophistication of quality ingredients and modern combinations — but be prepared to wait in line. WHAT As the dust settles from the last year of food-truck mania, the Grilled Cheese Truck is coming out one of the winners — not as much of a sensation as Kogi, [...]

Taste of the Nation: LA

Taste of the Nation: LA

Every year most of L.A.’s best chefs gather in a park in Culver City to feed needy children — but they do it by feeding those who can afford to pony up for a tasting fundraiser, and all the money goes to Share Our Strength, a national organization devoted to ending childhood malnutrition and hunger.

No longer will residents of this isolated bit of mountain paradise have to drive down to Santa Monica for their Lily’s eggs, Weiser Family Farm melons and Santiago Farms berries. The market will take [...]

Tar Pit Bar: Happy Hour Classics

Tar Pit Bar: Happy Hour Classics

No bones about it, the Tar Pit’s just-announced happy hour menu of drinks and snacks might ease your work-to-play transition beautifully. The sleek ’30s-supper-club-style bar-with-food, opened about six months ago by Campanile’s Mark Peel and Jay Perrin, offers a small selection of $6 classic cocktails (about half price) and a revolving “Aperitivo of the Week” [...]

Food as Art, Art as Food

Scion Space, a gallery in Culver City, is launching a show this week called Palate, devoted to art inspired by the edible. With works by such artists as Clare Crespo.

Vicente Foods: Touring L.A. in One Market

Vicente Foods: Touring L.A. in One Market

It’s easy enough to shop locally for produce at farmers’ markets. Things are a little trickier when you’re keen on finding an interesting locally produced relish to jazz up your burgers, or maybe a homegrown barbecue sauce to toss into a gift box (Father’s Day is right around the corner). One of our favorite markets [...]
