Where to grill meats in Koreatown, right now
LA Weekly goes in on what must be a controversial list: the city's best Korean BBQ houses. Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong doesn't make the list, which is surprising enough, but there are a few other curious options that don't match up with Eater's own KBBQ research.
Gasolina Cafe is holding Terrine's pig sign hostage
In a moment of let's-not-take-this-all-too-seriously, funky all-day Woodland Hills spot Gasolina Cafe is holding Terrine's pig sign (left behind from The Taste) for ransom. Their demands? Some foie gras terrine, naturally.
@terrinerestaurant you left your little chalkboard piggy at @thetastela event. We have said piggy and are holding he/she for ransom. It will cost you one Terrine De Foie Gras, and some good conversation to get the piggy back. You can bring the Terrine De Foie Gras, and the good conversation to 21014 Ventura Blvd., 91364. For the record, the piggy is happy, seems rather at home, and is being treated quite well... for now. #Food, #Coffee, #Tea, #Fuel, #Life, #FarmToTable, #SpecialtyCoffee, #SpecialtyTea, #SpecialtyWhatever, #OurPiggyNow, #WoodlandHills, #GoodStuff, #StopInFuelUp, #GasolinaCafe

Josh Kun talks to Bricia Lopez about recipes
The To Live and Dine in L.A. author hosts a sit-down at Chevalier's Books in Larchmont on October 1 with Bricia Lopez of Guelaguetza fame. Of course her mother's mole is rather famous, so expect a lot of talk about changing palates, cooking for the masses, and what it means to remain authentic.
No more hiding for Clifton's
As of last night, those tall black walls hiding much of the frontage of Clifton's Cafeteria have gone away. The unobstructed look inside offers glassy views of what should be one of the coolest reopenings in Los Angeles in recent memory.
