Mayor speak

Mayor Eric Garcetti took time out of his busy schedule to sit down with Jon Shook at his eponymous restaurant Jon & Vinny’s on Fairfax. The two talk entrepreneurship, culinary school, and what it means to grow a business and support people who live in Los Angeles.

Best of OC

OC Weekly has put out its annual Best Of issue, including definitives for things like best pizza, hot dogs, sushi, fries, happy hour, and more. Go give it a peek.

Tarzana surprise

Popular Valley spot Tel Aviv Grill is growing its branding, landing a new spot in Tarzana called Tel Aviv Fish Grill. As the nuanced name implies, this newcomer does everything from deep-fried red mullet to the usual array of pita and hummus, says Ventura Blvd. Magazine.

The opposite of scared

Mellow Downtown bar Bernadette’s is doing a “Dumb-o-Ween” party this Saturday night. Expect a costume contest, lots of candy, music, drinks, and more sincerely dumb stuff.

The wine arrives

Republique is hosting special Friday night wine dinner with Guillaume d’Angerville of Domaine Marquis d’Angerville and Guillaume Lavollée of Domaine Génot-Boulanger. The $300 affair features some highly sought-after wines along with a special coursed menu from Walter Manzke and company.

New eats

Lemonade is launching its new seasonal menu just in time for the heart of fall. That means savory options like a holiday turkey sandwich with cranberry relish, or healthier fare like an Israeli couscous salad.

Parlor talk

Melrose sports-watching spot The Parlor has expanded its happy hour offerings. The new weekday deals run 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday (minus Tuesday, because they’re closed), and include things like $4 beers and $9 platters of fish and chips. The happy hour menu is below.
