Even more Mo Better

Popular Mid-City shop Mo Better Burgers is angling for an expansion, but the price is turning out to be a bit more than they expected. So the team is turning to IndieGoGo for help, asking a cool $300,000 to aid in their plans to grow. They’ve already garnered some celebrity endorsements from the likes of Phil Rosenthal and Kerry Washington, but are sitting well below their mark with a month left.

Christina Tosi on Milk Bar

Food & Wine talked with Christina Tosi about all things Milk Bar LA, the planned sweets shop landing along Melrose sometime this spring. For starters, there will be chorizo pastries.


There’s a barbecue competition (of sorts) happening in the Arts District tomorrow, as Moo’s Craft BBQ squares off against the Peaches Smokehouse team at Iron Triangle Brewery. Tickets are $20 for the event, which is being held on the brewery’s second anniversary.

No more House of Cravings

Looks like House of Cravings on West Olympic Blvd. has proven to be short-lived, after all. The A-frame property is closed until further notice, per their website.

Leatherby’s returns

Patina project Leatherby’s is back online at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, following a bit of nip and tuck. The steakhouse officially reopens tonight.

Noods again

Speaking of Orange County, the area’s second annual Noods Noods Noods food festival is returning to Santa Ana on January 27. Expect all things noodles, with plenty of Instagram shots to be had. Tickets are on sale now.

Burger lunch on Fairfax

The Kronnerburger team is back in LA once again, this time teaming up with Animal for a fun lunch. Expect burgers, fried chicken, and more, today only.
