Marché Moderne rises from the ashes

Beloved Orange County restaurant Marché Moderne has come back from the dead, following a shutter at its South Coast Plaza location. It’s now up and running at a different shopping hub (this time Crystal Cove), and comes with some newly improved ocean views. Marché Moderne has fans across the Southland (among them one Jonathan Gold), and according to the LA Times is now working an updated menu of classics and new dishes alike from inside a 4,200 square foot space. Expect dinner-only hours to start. 7862 E. Pacific Coast Highway, Newport Beach.

The making of a dish

Melisse chef/owner Josiah Citrin is a wonder to watch in the kitchen, especially when his moves are overlaid by some Talking Heads music. Enjoy.

Beer for Burbank

There’s a proper craft beer festival coming to Burbank later this month. The aptly-named Burbank Beer Festival takes over downtown Burbank on October 21 for two separate three-hour drinking sessions, with almost 100 confirmed beer vendors plus food and music and more. Tickets land in the $40 a head range.

Pasta time at Union

Pasadena pasta palace Union is doing a big monthlong charity drive for the Red Cross, with diners able to purchase a special edition of one of the restaurant’s signature pastas and have a portion of the proceeds doing directly to relief efforts in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. This week is the bucatini cacio e pepe, with the spaghetti alla chitarra and others to follow.

Bombay Frankie time

The trend of great gas station food around Los Angeles continues, with Food & Wine talking up the eats at Bombay Frankie in West LA. The place doesn’t skimp on skills, bringing in a real tandoor oven to make their signature frankies fresh.

Homestate x Ace Hotel

Texas-loving Homestate is joining forces with Downtown’s Ace Hotel for an afternoon event on Sunday, October 8, and all the proceeds are going to the Central Texas Food Bank. Fred Armisen will be DJ-ing, there will be cocktails, and, of course, tacos.
