Plan Check 1800 Sawtelle Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90025 Dining date: 4/3/12 Plan Check opened just over a month ago, bringing a ‘modern American’ gastropub to the Japanese-centric Sawtelle area of West LA. It’s a combination of ex-Umami Corporate Chef Ernesto Uchimura’s grub with drinks masterminded by Steve Livigni and Pablo Moix (Harvard & Stone, [...]


Le Comptoir (Los Angeles, CA)

Le Comptoir Tiara Cafe 127 E 9th St Los Angeles, CA 90015 Dining date: 3/29/12 Le Comptoir has been sort of a longer-term pop-up, occupying the Tiara Cafe space in downtown’s fashion district for a number of months now.

Lazy Ox Canteen (Los Angeles, CA)

Lazy Ox Canteen 241 S San Pedro St Los Angeles, CA 90012 Dining date: 4/1/12 I’ve been to Lazy Ox Canteen a number of times and have always had a fairly positive experience (except for the time they ran out of fried chicken at 6:30). However, for me it’s been stuck in the “pretty good, [...]

No. 216: Foodventuring in Torrance

This week’s Culinary SOS: Elway’s charred red pepper soup

This week's Culinary SOS comes from Dave Wohl in Sudbury, Mass.:  I was reading the L.A. Times online edition today and saw that you were able to get favorite recipes! I get to Denver a few times a year, and at Elway's restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton, they serve a terrific charred roasted red pepper soup. [...]


Del Monte Speakeasy and the awesome history of Prohibition tunnels

Did you know that during Prohibition whiskey boats from Canada would anchor offshore of Venice and row their whiskey barrels to utility tunnels and catacombs under the Venice Pier that led to the tony hotels and bars that lined the boardwalk? I didn't. But I love the idea. It's so very "Boardwalk Empire." Apparently the [...]


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 [...]


Morels; Wild Fennel; The Future of Food Writing

Is there a future in food writing? An influential writer says yes, but it’s not what it used to be. Plus, the hunt for morels and foraging for wild fennel in LA.


Gwyneth Paltrow Takes Car .06 miles to Madeo; Ryan Reynolds Chomps on Casa Vega

Even for Hollywood, that’s a little lazy It ain’t easy being green, as friend-of-the-environment Gwyenth Paltrow reportedly told West Hollywood recently by taking a limousine for all of ten seconds just to travel from Stella McCartney’s boutique to Madeo, a couple of days before Earth Day, no less. Sure, this is L.A. and all, but [...]
