More and more pizza

Don’t look now, but Los Angeles is getting another pizza place. This one is called Paperboy, and it lands at the growing Third Street Promenade food court known as The Gallery. Paperboy comes by way serial restaurateur Jeremy Fall, who is simultaneously about to open Nighthawk A.M. and Easy’s over in the Beverly Center, while also managing projects in Highland Park, in Chicago, and elsewhere. Reps call the place “an innovative take on the classic pizza joint.” There’s no official opening date as of yet for the location, which sits on the second floor at 1325 Third St. Promenade, Santa Monica.

Taco moments

Dine L.A. is hosting a monthlong taco trek, where in-the-know eaters can follow a path to some of the city’s best tacos. It all kicks off today at Guisados in Burbank, where diners can show up, say “Dine L.A. Taco Trek,” and get a bistek free taco.

The next thing

Chef Eric Greenspan has another new delivery-only restaurant starting today. It’s called Bubu’s Finest Birds & Burgers, and it focuses on fried chicken (sandwiches, wings, tenders, or by the bucket), plus 13 lb. burgers as well. Find it as of today on Postmates, GrubHub, or UberEats.

Nous news

Avec Nous in Beverly Hills is participating in Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To help pitch in, all one needs to do is stop by for a Chanel #5 cocktail, glass of rose wine of the day, or an entree like the $35 lobster ravioli, and a portion of the proceeds will go the American Breast Cancer Foundation.

Food March

March of Dimes will hold its annual gala this year at the SLS Beverly Hills hotel on Thursday, October 11. The large-scale fundraising event pulls together some of the bigger restaurant names in the city (Otium, Baltaire, Hamasaku, Kato, Wilshire, Viale dei Romani, etc.) for a seated dinner at the cost of $450 a head. And what’s more, this year the event will honor none other than Mozza’s Nancy Silverton.

It’s FAB

The all-female hospitality workshop FAB is coming to Los Angeles on October 22. This year’s lineup includes names like Marie Petulla of Union, Jenn Louis of Ray, Evan Kleiman of KCRW, Roxana Jullapat of Friends & Family, and many more. It’s happening at Elysian in Frogtown, and runs $225 for the one-day event.

The measure

Good Measure in Atwater Village is flipping its menu format, moving from an overall look at the wine regions of the world to focusing on one region each quarter. The new fall menu (below) will focus on Italy, while still offering some of the “greatest hits” from the restaurant’s previous menus, meaning lamb meatballs alongside new dishes like chicken milanese.
