Here’s our history with Italian food

LA Weekly tackles a big, broad historical subject with ease in this new look at the long-running story of Italian food in Los Angeles. It’s an in-depth and lengthy read, but very awesome.

Anthony Bourdain likes Jumbo’s Clown Room

Bourdain has been making the media rounds in Los Angeles lately, talking up all his favorite places (In-N-Out, Chateau Marmont, Chi Spacca) one by one. He also reveals to Bravo that he’s still a fan of Jumbo’s Clown Room in East Hollywood / Thai Town.

Danny Meyer loves Bludso’s

Shake Shack owner Danny Meyer has been in town thanks to the recent Glendale opening, and he looks to be rather enjoying himself. Case in point: his high praise for this beast of a sandwich from Bludso’s Bar & Que on La Brea.

Brisket and hot link sandwich. This place knows how to smoke. Wow.

Mario Batali is coming

TimeOut launches print edition

The Los Angeles branch of TimeOut is going into print in a big way, launching their first-ever edition on Wednesday, October 5. Want to celebrate the launch with them? You can do so here.

Coffee for the cause

Westside favorite Superba Food & Bread is going big on September 29 for what is apparently National Coffee Day. Stop in for a cup that day at the Venice location and the proceeds from your drink will go towards local charity Venice Arts, while the El Segundo location is donating to Walk With Sally.
