Forklore: Biscuits, cooked once

Everybody knows that biscotti are cooked twice. Well, in Latin "twice cooked" is bis coctus, the expression from which biscotto comes, but that doesn't mean that when you ask for a biscotto in Italy, you'll get something that has been cooked twice.

Black Hogg (Los Angeles, CA)

Black Hogg 2852 W Sunset Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90026 Dining date: 5/4/12 Black Hogg opened in March and has quickly become a popular destination in Silver Lake.

Getting your goat at Tar & Roses

Word travels fast when it comes to the special goat menu at Andrew Kirschner's new Tar & Roses restaurant in Santa Monica. Some friends were having dinner there one night and spotted the big platter of golden roasted meat coming out of the kitchen. "What's that?" they asked. When they learned the details — a [...]

Rick Ross, Mear One, and Eric Garcetti Last night’s “Art of the City” benefit, held at St. Vibiana’s to raise funds for A Better L.A., looked a little like a scene from The Wire. The bizarro L.A. edition, that is. In a speech supporting Pete Carroll’s non-profit program, mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti pointed to his [...]


Bar Amá new Tex-Mex to open downtown

Josef Centeno, the chef behind downtown restaurant Bäco Mercat, expects to open a new Tex-Mex spot called Bar Amá this fall, located in a 2,100-square-foot space that includes the former Urban Noodle (which closed last weekend) on 4th Street.

Sunny Spot (Venice, CA)

Sunny Spot 822 Washington Blvd Venice, CA 90292 Dining date: 4/15/12 Sunny Spot, to me, is an unexpected concept from Korean chef Roy Choi, a Venice “roadside cookshop” serving full-flavored Caribbean grub. Choi (whom I just met for the first time last week) is most famous for bringing the Kogi truck to the streets, as [...]
