THAI TOWN— Jet Tila chats with Tara Maxey of Heirloom LA about his latest restaurant, Stir Market, and then takes the Metro over to Thai Town. The video discusses the 15-year history of Thai Town, and Tila's family's impact on the community's sizable food scene. Of note, they stop by Ruen Pair, the excellent Chinese-Thai restaurant inside the crowded New Hollywood Plaza on Hollywood Blvd, and have the best papaya salad in America. [Take Part]

BELL— Talented chef Wes Avila (Guerilla Tacos) and Eddie Ruiz (Corazon y Miel) are partnering up to do a taco-tastic dinner at Corazon y Miel on December 8 from 6 to 10 p.m., offering six courses for $45, plus tax and tip. Book a table here.

PALM SPRINGS— Jose Garces re-opened his tapas restaurant, Tinto, today inside The Saguaro Hotel, after a mild interior refresh and menu update. New dishes include pulpo de Gallega, mussels with saffron aioli, and anchovy boquerones.
