Lion Fish at Chengdu Taste; Mast Brothers in Beverly Hills

ALHAMBRA— Chengdu Taste is San Gabriel Valley's hot newish Szechuan restaurant, of which Jonathan Gold is a fan. He recently returned and discovered that the eatery serves "lion fish," aka the "Bloomin' Onion of the undersea world," a dish he has never actually seen on a menu. And while The Goldster was "thrilled" to try the flayed and deep-fried fish, he admits it was "very good" but not his favorite seafood on the menu. [LAT]

BEVERLY HILLS—The Mast Brothers, subject of a recent profile in the NY Times, will sign copies of their new chocolate cookbook, Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook, at Monsieur Marcel on October 27 from 1-2 p.m. Apparently Monsieur Marcel was the first shop in LA to carry their full chocolate line.

CULVER CITY— Chef Kevin Meehan of Kali Dining is teaming up with Patricia Tsai over at ChocoVivo from Novebmer 1-3 for a series of five-course dinners in which each course will incorporate chocolate, both savory and sweet. The meal costs $95 and diners will sit at a communal table in the middle of the shop. Alcohol is BYO. [EaterWire]
