EaterWire: Huckleberry Titans, More Bar Food Details

SANTA MONICA—How's this for a clash of the titans? Jonathan Gold, on Huckleberry: "How crowded is Huckleberry? On Sunday, Maria Shriver tapped me on the shoulder asking if it was okay if she and her family shared the table. The governor not only waited in line without pulling rank, but cheerfully got up to fetch his own coffee from the communal urn." [LAW]

WEST LAYesterday, we reported that something called Bar Food ("Bar*Food"?) had already laid claim to the shuttered Zu Robata space on Wilshire, and here we have a few more details to share. Apparently, it's a project from the former owner of the Third Stop. Everything on the menu is under 10 dollars, and even though they have a full license, only beer and wine will be offered at first.

PASADENA—Some recession specials are better than others, but it looks like La Grande Orange Cafe in Pasadena has a good one for the families out there: all kids eat free (from the kids menu only) every day of the week before 6pm. [EaterWire]

THE UK—A month after the fact, Heston Blumenthal thinks he may have identified the source of the Fat Duck outbreak: "Blumenthal said that after exhaustive tests at the restaurant, of the staff and of customers, norovirus was the only potential cause that had been found ... 'The only thing that has come up is the three staff and five customers have been tested positive for something called noro virus,' he said." [Hospitality via ENY]
