The best new restaurants around

Esquire’s annual list of best new restaurants is out, and of course there are a few Los Angeles hotspots on the rundown. Chief among them is Felix, Evan Funke’s massively popular Italian trattoria on Abbot Kinney in Venice. Downtown’s PYT, chef Josef Centeno’s newer vegetable-focused restaurant, also makes the cut.

Action Bronson is here

Looks like rapper, television show host, and recent book author Action Bronson is in town. The big, bearded man showed up for a photo at Wexler’s Deli in Santa Monica, where they likely consumed large amounts of pastrami, bagels, and lox.

CNN stumps for Downtown

CNN can’t get enough of Downtown apparently, ticking off their five favorite restaurants in a recent list. Though it’s far from comprehensive, the piece does help shine a national spotlight on Broken Spanish, Bestia, and even Sarita’s inside Grand Central Market.

Promising pho

A North Hollywood Arts District newcomer looks to shake up the culinary scene in the Valley with big bowls of pho. The cheekily-named Pho Sure leans traditional despite the name and location, and offers a ton of seafood options to try says Ventura Blvd. Magazine.

The potato’s secrets

Wes Avila’s sweet potato tacos are far from an LA secret, but it’s not every day that the technique on how to get them just right floats around the internet. That’s where Taste Cooking comes in, giving readers the backstory and recipe to one of LA’s most famous meals.

The Walker Inn’s new shuffle

There’s a bunch of new menu items showing up at Koreatown cocktail den The Walker Inn. The bar team for the reservation-taking drink spot inside the Normandie Club is turning up the fun for Halloween, with a bunch of fall-inspired flavored and at least one drink mixing bourbon and Reese’s peanut butter cups.

Angelini’s night moves

Angelini Alimentari recently celebrated one year in the game, and now the casual offshoot of Angelini Osteria is tuning things up for dinner. Expect a more laid-back Italian restaurant experience than next door, with nothing over $18 to eat. And yes, there is absolutely pasta on the menu.
