Someone’s not happy with Clifton’s Cafeteria

Local blog Dine and Travel took the reborn Downtown restaurant/bar space to task for its uninspired food and shockingly quick turnover at both the management and kitchen levels. Thankfully, they’re hopeful that Meieran and his team can correct the ship soon enough and stabilize after what’s been a whirlwind couple of months.

Duff Goldman’s restaurant picks

L.A. transplant and noted cake maker Duff Goldman gave his Friday five picks for places to eat around town, per The Infatuation. His choices? The oddball Kula Sushi on Sawtelle and Awash Restaurant on Pico Boulevard.

Revolutionario Tacos debuts pay-what-you-can model for Thanksgiving

Chef Farid Zadi loves his new South L.A. community, and to pay back the love that Revolutionario has received from the locals since they’ve been open his team will offer a pay-what-you-can Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday, November 25 from noon until 9 p.m. A plate includes turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, cranberry sauce and a biscuit, and runs $14 naturally, but of course that’s up to you.

Horse Thief gets a new bar

If you’ve been Downtown for some Horse Thief barbecue recently, you’ve noticed their patio got a bit of revamp, but their bar is still closed up. They’re serving beer still, but are hard at work making the actual bar experience much better in the meantime. Luckily the eyesore wall is coming down in about a week, which means you’ll once again be able to enjoy all the ribs and Lone Star beer you want.

$5 pressed juices

Running today through Saturday, Pressed Juicery is celebrating their five year anniversary by doling out all of their juices and blends for just $5 a pop at each of their 35 retail locations in both California and Nevada. They also just opened up in New York City, though that one doesn’t get in on the deal.

The Churchill's new chef has an awesome nickname

Did you know that Bruce Kalman was once the chef at West Third's The Churchill? Since then, they've had Michael Bryant, who has also left the position to make way for Camilo "Dude" Zamora (yes, that's his real nickname). After cooking at Bestia, Dude will continue to push fresh California fare with inspiration from Asia, Italy, Austria, and Latin America.

Good cause grain project pushes all-you-can-pizza promotion

The Tehachapi Grain Project is picking up steam, and to keep the momentum going they’re hosting a Thursday night dinner pizza party at the Hedley & Bennett space that includes the Urban Pie LA crew and beer from Smog City. Honestly it’s a pretty great deal, since it runs from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and includes all you can eat pizza and beer.

Gardner Junction adjusts into longer hours

The newish Hollywood spot Gardner Junction is starting to flex its muscles, starting up both daytime and brunch hours this week. The brunch option will also include a unique option called Runyon Brunch Club, which will have chef/owner Steve Brown leading a pack of 8 a.m. diners up Runyon Canyon before food, then giving them a 15% discount for their efforts on the meal. Lunch starts Thursday and includes salads, sandwiches, and tacos, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
