La Dolce Vita at The Laemmle; Alex's Lemonade Lineup

SANTA MONICA— The Laemmle Theater on 2nd Street will undergo a much needed facelift beginning mid-May and when the movie house reopens in December it will house a restaurant called La Dolce Vita. Likely a reference to famous Fellini film of the same name. Based on the title, one would assume Italian cuisine, but theatre staff say the eatery will be French. Either way, no connection to La Dolce Vita in Beverly Hills. [Toddrickallen]

UCLA— Those behind L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade just announced the 2014 chef lineup and new venue: UCLA. Arguably the best single day food festival Los Angeles has to offer, so far power players Michael Voltaggio, Chris Bianco, Donald Link, Nancy Silverton, and Giada De Laurentiis are onboard. If you enjoy their edibles, save the date of September 20. [EaterWire]
