Petty Cash parties at lunch

Beverly Boulevard’s own Petty Cash is now open for lunch, doing Wednesday through Friday hours from noon until 3 p.m., and again on Saturday and Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. The menu is largely the same — tacos, ceviches, nachos and the like — with the addition of a salad or two. Plus the constant presence of that all-important mid-work margarita, of course.

It’s the Masters of Taste

Here comes a Rose Bowl food party on the field, as luxe food festival Masters of Taste runs Sunday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Meant to be a higher-end alternative to other food festivals (with all proceeds still going to support a charity, in this case the Union Station Homeless Services), the $125 general admission event — or $225 for VIP — will include food from Birch, BierBeisl, Nighthawk, Redbird, The Raymond, and beyond. There’s also beer, cocktails and lots of desserts on offer — get your tickets here.

The Saltner comes to Monrovia

Here’s a quiet little newcomer: The Saltner, slated for sometime late spring in Monrovia. The space is meant to be a wine bar with a small plates offering and a retail side, doing wines by the glass, bottle, or for take-home consumption. Food GPS says construction is underway now at 108 E. Colorado Blvd.

Clementine’s grilled cheese month is here

For the 15th year in a row, Clementine is doing grilled cheese month, wherein they serve up a variety of the fan favorite sandwiches beginning April 1. This year’s offerings are more of a retrospective of the previous years than anything in particular (they usually have a theme, you see), but will include something from every year they’ve done the event.

Ox & Son adds a full bar

Local Montana Avenue spot Ox & Son is adding a full bar, per some paperwork spotted by Toddrickallen. That means the addition of cocktails to the casual dinner spot, though truth be told they’ve been doing brisk business with just beer and wine so far. Still, cocktails are always a good idea.

Thursday night is burger night at aestus

Can’t get enough burger in your life? Get to aestus then, where Thursday nights are burger nights at both the bar and in the dining room. There are rotating burger specials and wine deals all night long, as well as the regular menu of options.

Saddle Peak Lodge on the cheap

Malibu Hills quiet dinner spot Saddle Peak Lodge is now rocking a pretty killer weeknight dinner deal, where $35 nets you a three-course meal. Options rotate regularly, but here's the menu for April.
