Tortugas brings the Mexican torta to Old Town Pasadena
Casual newcomer Tortugas is now slinging Mexican sandwiches in the heart of Pasadena, right next to King Taco. The easygoing fast casual option does a dozen or so daily sandwich options, from pork adobo to milanesa to the vaunted Cubana. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at 37 N. Arroyo Parkway.
Bill Clinton dines at Wally's
A tipster sends along this awesome photo of former president Bill Clinton dining at Wally's in Beverly Hills last night with owner Christian Navarro. Not sure if he stuck to a strictly vegan diet or treated himself to some special options from (relatively) new chef David Féau's updated menu, but pretty great nonetheless.
The Butcher’s Daughter does dinner
The Butcher’s Daughter has been doing well in Venice, leading the nearly vegan restaurant to expand into dinner hours daily. They don’t take reservations but as of today the restaurant will stay open until 10 p.m. most nights, and 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday while rocking a menu as diverse as egg and mushroom pizzas or cauliflower ‘steak frites.’
Madcapra talks about toast with Bon App
Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson of Grand Central Market's Madcapra are talking toast with Bon Appetit, riffing on options for using up all those spent herb stems and unused bits from their market stall restaurant. Hint: it involves some pickling.
HomeState x Intelligentsia weekend parties are here
You can now get your breakfast taco fix right at Intelligentsia in Silver Lake, instead of schlepping over to HomeState in Los Feliz (both will have lines though, so...). Much like how things are done in Austin, the coffee bar will be carrying a Saturday and Sunday only collection of breakfast tacos that can be easily taken to go.
