Tois Mec dinners

For this season only, chef Ludo Lefebvre has decided to switch things up at Trois Mec. The ticketed tasting menu strip mall hit remains among the most sought-after reservations in the city, but now instead of single-diner coursed out meals, the fall plan is to operate as a family-style restaurant. That means group dinners where everybody shares everything at the table, and only two reserved seatings per night. The format change isn’t forever, though; Expect this new French table d’hotes idea to run only from October 30 to November 26.

The battle

Alta Magazine takes fresh swings in the L.A. vs. S.F. food scene debate, declaring Southern California as the true winner in the battle, based largely on the diversity and innovation found within some of the region’s best kitchens.

New coffee

Goat rules

L.A. Taco has a great breakdown on the Goat Mafia out of Compton. The Birria purists who are stewing some of the best goat in the city.

Gesso wine

Gesso on Fairfax is hosting a wine dinner with Steve Clifton of Palmina on October 25. The $95 event spans four courses with pairings, and includes gratuity.
