An LA two-fer from BA
Bon Appetit just announced their best new restaurants in the country and not one, but TWO restaurants from LA landed on it. Critic Andrew Knowlton named Petit Trois (#3), which Eater's own Bill Addison already declared one of the best new restaurants in the country, plus Gjusta (#2) as two of the top three in the country. It's always good to see a national publication recognize what LA is up to these days.

In other Stone news, the hunky Australian chef did a little presentation yesterday in Hollywood for his upcoming Princess Cruises restaurant, which will be called Share by Curtis Stone. The concept is scheduled to launch inside the Ruby and Emerald Princess ships by December.

Just buy your way into Clifton's
The LA Conservancy wants to get you into the upcoming Clifton's relaunch party, by letting you pay $125 for the dinner-and-drinks soiree to be held on September 21. The money goes to benefit the Conservancy, of course, which is tasked with keeping some of the city's best treasures from reaching the scrap heap.
Pizza by way of Reseda
The recently remodeled Humble Bee Bakery in Northridge is going through a growth spurt, pushing into Reseda with a new pizza concept called Humble Bee Pie. The evening-only pizza spot opens tomorrow and takes over a former Ameci's in a nondescript strip mall.
