CENTURY CITY— Bru's Counter, the offshoot of Santa Monica's Bru's Wiffle, started serving softly this week with a menu of crispy chicken sandwiches, salads, waffles, and pretty much every other kind of comfort food imaginable. The relatively underserved neighborhood should accept the newcomer well. [~ELA~]

AROUND TOWN— It may not have been filled completely with bacon, but 2013 was still a good year of eating pork, evidenced in this listicle by FoodGPS. Included is Tsujita ANNEX, Superba Snack Bar's Cold Cuts, and Yu Hyang Soondae in Koreatown. [FoodGPS]

LITTLE TOKYO— Curbed has a nifty tale of the legendary Atomic Cafe in Little Tokyo that was once in the building that Senor Fish most recently occupied. Atomic Cafe was a hangout for punk gods Blondie, Warhol, and David Byrne. Along with Spice Table, which will host its last dinner tonight, the entire block will be leveled for the Metro's Regional Connector. [Curbed]
