Church & State Plants Urban Garden, Fogo de Chao Gets Revamp, New Eats at Lamill

New, 2 comments

DOWNTOWN— Earth Day is coming up and Church & State plans to celebrate via its new on-site Urban Production Garden. On Thursday volunteers from Pedal Patch Community (an LA-based non-profit that works to prevent hunger and poverty) will teach kids from the Heart of Los Angeles Youth how to sow seeds during the garden's first harvest (herbs are located along the side of the restaurant plus in pots). Later that day and going forward, the restaurant will serve three cocktails (Sorrel-Gin Fizz, The Spice Trade, and Parsley Mojito) featuring the freshly grown herbs. To start, the garden produces rosemary, dill, cilantro, onions, sorrel, mizuna and Osaka red mustard lettuces. In the future C&S hopes to grow carrots, pumpkins, squash, melons, onions, peppers, eggplant, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, and other seasonal veggies. [EaterWire]

BEVRLY HILLS/NATIONAL— The Brazilian churrascaria, Fogo de Chao, has completed a $1 million dollar renovation of its Addison, Texas outpost which will serve as the reference point for updates coming to other Fogo de Chaos across the country. The revamped space boasts "higher ceilings, amber glass chandeliers and private-dining areas that were expanded to accommodate parties of 10 to 100." [NRN]
