Historic L.A.: Tam O’Shanter celebrates 90 years with craft beer, carolers, trivia and rarebit poutine

Los Feliz Blvd. was a dirt road when the Tam O’Shanter opened in 1922. There’s no doubt that the Tam O’Shanter was way cooler in the 1920s, when movie set designer Harry Oliver gave it the look of a ramshackle fairytale house with a random Indian gift shop on the side. But the Lawry’s-owned restaurant [...]


Taste of Mexico spices up Downtown Friday evening

Jaime and Ramiro of La Casita Mexicana The 2nd annual Taste of Mexico returns Friday evening (6 pm to 11 pm) with unlimited tastes from some of L.A.’s top Mxican restaurants, and of course premium tequila, mezcal and Baja wineries. A portion of ticket sales will benefit the Downtown L.A. Art Walk.  Who’s there? Restaurants [...]


Picca’s new fall menu: Why you should put aside prejudice and order a sweet potato cocktail right now

Caigua (Peruvian cucumber), stuffed with beef, raisins and feta Picca chef Ricardo Zarate has come up with a swath of new menu items, despite being busy with the more-recently opened Mo-Chica downtown and plans for a new restaurant, Paiche, in Marina del Rey. Even though Picca is nearly always buzzy and full, it seems like [...]


Holiday guests arriving? Why not stock up on, yes, barbecued meats with a Filipino twist?

A giant beef shortrib is sliced and served with horseradish crema If a food critic says, "It doesn’t have any flavor of the neighborhood it’s in," it’s a true slam to a place that’s trying to be too slick or ignore the area’s culture. This will never be said of The Park’s Finest, probably the [...]


Historic L.A.: Eagle Rock’s Rite Spot was hopping before Cindy’s

Bluffside dining in Eagle Rock at the Rite Spot, circa 1937 I was inspired by L.A. Observed’s post on L,A. photographer William Reagh to go digging into the L.A. Public Library photo archives again for more historic restaurant shots. Photographer Herman Schultheis, for some reason, exhaustively photographed the Rite Spot cafe where Cindy’s now stands [...]


Silver Lake Ramen: Expanding the neighborhood’s noodle palate

A former pupuseria got a sleek makeover in the Silver Sun Liquor plaza Now that I’ve moved back to Silver Lake, I couldn’t be happier about the array of new restaurants for everyday eating. Sure, it would be nice to have more destination restaurants in the neighborhood, but most of us can’t afford to go [...]


Sqirl on Virgil: How to prolong your apricot bliss

brioche toast with Blenheim apricot jam and almond butter, La Esperanza coffee I’ve been obsessed with apricots almost my whole life. "Daddy, please buy me an apricot roll," I used to beg in the aisles of the old Food Giant on Canon Drive, where I would then wrap the fruit leather around my thumb and [...]


Remember L.A.’s Little Italy at Saturday’s Taste of Italy benefit

The Eastside Market on Alpine St. is one of the few remaining landmarks of L.A.’s Little Italy. Didn’t realize there was a strong Italian community in L.A.? It’s true that any vestiges of Italian neighborhood’s like San Francisco’s North Beach or New York’s Little Italy have pretty much disappeared, but they’ll make a one-day return [...]


Beer goggles and Doc Martens: What to wear to a beer festival

Doc Martens and dirndl: a tribute to the beers of England and Germany? Beer can be oh so refreshing on a hot day, but this year’s L.A. Beer Week festival tested even the hardiest hophead with 95 degree heat and lots of high-alcohol brews. But organizers moved most of the booths into the shade, and [...]


City Sip: 2.0 version debuts tonight in Echo Park

Former "CSI" production coordinator turned wine bar proprietor Nicole Daddio has soaked up a lot about the Echo Park sensibility since she opened City Sip four years ago. One of the things she learned is that Echo Park’s wine bar enthusiasts are pretty much allergic to high prices, formality and fussy wine protocol in general. [...]
