A Creative Hiatus for Fatty’s

A Creative Hiatus for Fatty’s

Thanks to our friend Kim Ohanneson for passing on the news about one of our favorite vegetarian restaurants: Angelenos, get ready to speed dial. After a decade of delighting Angelenos with high-end vegan and vegetarian fare paired with fine wines, Fatty & Co.’s will close its doors for an unspecified amount of time, Eat/Drink/See Eagle Rock [...]

Petrossian

Petrossian

WHY To pick up a great gift for a caviar lover—and it’s not all $364-an-ounce Royal Sevruga stuff, either. WHAT This Euro-moderne West Hollywood outpost of the Parisian fancy-food emporium has a caviar-and-crème fra’che décor, 1950s Hollywood glam photos on the dining room walls and two big communal tables in the shop for tasting the [...]

Noodle Island

Noodle Island

WHY Ancient ginger chicken soup with your choice of noodles (rice noodles are best). WHAT This strip-mall noodle café is more elegant than most, with dark colors, bamboo details and poultry objets d’art that let you know that this is a place for consuming chicken. At most of the tables you’ll see the two house [...]

55 Degrees

55 Degrees

WHY A terrific array of Italians and a brick-walled, candlelit basement tasting room that’s become the hippest spot in Atwater every night from 5 to 10 p.m. WHAT This eastern outpost of Santa Monica’s Wine Expo is an oenophile hot spot in suddenly hip Atwater. As in Santa Monica, the specialty is small-producer Italian wines [...]

Mama’s Hot Tamales

Mama’s Hot Tamales

WHY Indulge in these tamales not only because they’re delicious, but because they’re making L.A. a better place. Good coffee, too, and a gallery showcasing local artists. WHAT Sure, the tamales from every region of Mexico and Central America are wonderful, and yes, the café is a vividly colorful community center, but this nonprofit is [...]

Moles la Tia

Moles la Tia

WHY There’s more than the usual Mexican bill of fare here—this spot elevates sauces to the main attraction. WHAT Red, green and black moles are just the beginning of the rainbow of dishes here. Neither divey nor fancy, it’s the perfect informal place for a party or group dinner, the better to experience dozens of [...]

Moore’s Delicatessen

Moore’s Delicatessen

WHY Our new favorite chicken soup in town, plus quality, classic deli fare and tasty, affordable wines and beers. WHAT Robert Moore, the chef husband of candymaker Christine Moore of sea-salt caramel fame, is the talent behind this offshoot of the couple’s Little Flower Candy Co. café in Pasadena. Here the focus is on straightforward [...]

Chameau Delibar

Chameau Delibar

WHY A handy place for a quick bite with a dash of modern Moroccan style. WHAT Chameau has been transformed into Chameau Delibar, and though some are mourning the flaky duck b’stilla, Delibar has its own appeal. Gourmet sandwiches and salads bear a hint of the restaurant’s Moroccan past, such as the zingy eggplant purée, [...]

Chego

Chego

WHY Kogi goes stationary. WHAT The thing to get at this simple little café is the rice-bowl version of owner Roy Choi’s infamous short rib and spicy pork tacos, though the grains are somehow not as captivating as the Kogi Truck tortillas. But at these bargain prices, it’s still a fun-to-taste game. The prime rib [...]

Silver Lake Farmers’ Market

Silver Lake Farmers’ Market

WHY For its strong sense of neighborhood—some Silver Lake backyard farmers sell their produce here. It’s a particularly good market for gifts made by local craftspeople. In spring and summer, look for the guy who sells wonderful backyard-grown herbs. If you’re hungry, hit the crèpes booth. WHAT This small morning market sees neighbors catching up [...]
