EaterWire: The Atlantic's New Food Site, Farmers Market Wars, the End of Resy Scalpers?

LAUNCHES & RELEASES——Today, The Atlantic unveils a shiny new food website, and there's certainly a lot going on over there. It's headed by Corby Kummer, and already, we've got all kinds of feature articles about topics like turkey farming by Bill Niman, dinner with Larry David, the process of building a vineyard in Napa, Italy's most famous butcher, and so much more. There's also something overlooked by most print websites: that precious RSS feed. [The Atlantic Food Channel]

GLENDALE—A recent proposal for a new farmers' market at Americana at Brand is not sitting well with the folks over at the Sunday Harvest Farmer's market in Montrose, who worry that the competition would cut their business by at least 20% ... despite the fact that said markets would be six miles apart.

HERMOSA BEACHGood news for restaurants in HB: "All Hermosa Beach restaurants that shutter before the bar scene really gets going will soon be allowed to serve beer and wine without having to apply for an additional operating permit. By unanimous vote, the Hermosa Beach City Council approved an ordinance at its March 10 meeting that will allow any restaurant that closes by 10 p.m. to serve beer and wine." [TBR]

THE INTERNETS—Remember TableXchange, the resy scalper service that was briefly the bane of local restaurateurs' existence, until it got pretty much flopped here last year? Well, the thing about resy scalpers is that when tables are suddenly easy to score during a recession, they go out of business. [~ENY~]
