Dog Haus stays home

With all the renewed attention on Pasadena’s famed Rose Bowl lately (thanks to the return of the NFL, the Arroyo Seco music festival, and the coming Olympics) it only makes sense that the 95-year-old property would be considering a few cosmetic upgrades. Among them is a growing focus on the food and beverage side of things, from one-off events to game day mainstays. That’s where the Dog Haus team comes in.

Dog Haus is a local brand to Pasadena, but offers a big national reach thanks to some savvy franchising agreements. Now they’re pushing into the Rose Bowl permanently as a new vendor, not unlike Ludo’s fried chicken or the B.S. Taqueria at Staples Center. It all goes official as of September 3, with possible plans for more local vendors to come to the Rose Bowl down the line.

Pizza on the road

The fine folks at Eat See Repeat are back again with a new shot, this one of the prosciutto pizza with arugula from Mozza. Check out that view.

Defining the city

Los Angeles can be a big, foreboding place without the right sense of personal place — which is exactly where restaurants can come in to help. The Standard’s own culture blog explores that topic in more detail, laying out some of the most LA-defining restaurants (Grand Central Market, Philippe’s, The Apple Pan) that often help to make a place feel like home.

Eat responsibly

Orange County’s Ecology Center of Southern California is hosting a big farm-style dinner on September 16. The affair will include Jennifer Sherman of Chez Panisse and Drew Deckman of Baja’s Deckman’s En El Mogor restaurant, and will focus on sustainable food efforts and farmers leading the charge.

Root for the home team

The Larchmont Ledger has a fun piece out on the sports love affair between long-running Irish bar Tom Bergin’s and the Los Angeles Rams. The Fairfax drink spot still has an original 1951 Rams championship banner hanging inside, and now with the return of the Rams to LA there’s even more reason to root locally.

Crepes come to Glendale

Crepes are coming to a reborn corner building in Glendale soon, as newcomer Creamy Spoon opens for business. Yes it sounds like an ice cream shop, but in actuality Creamy Spoon is a kind of all-day French bistro, doing salads, sandwiches, crepes, pastries, and just about everything in between. Expect a throwback, almost candy-store-like space inside. 106 N. Glendale Ave., Glendale.
