Cart magic

Check out this gorgeous new pinxtos cart at Hotel Figueroa. The mix-and-match snack cart started rolled out last night under the direction of chef Casey Lane, and will be available inside streetside restaurant Breva as well as the lobby on any home Lakers game night, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Expect a variety of small bar bites and Spanish snacks priced between $4 and $10, like beef tartare, gazpacho, patatas bravas, and the like.

Goodbye bar

Punch Magazine has words from Besha Rodell on The Other Side, what she calls “LA’s last great LGBT piano bar.” The lingering question is: What now?

Burger returns

George Motz is one again returning to Smorgasburg in Downtown. The Sunday burger session is part of a slew of new weekly one-off burger stands helmed by out-of-towners and big local chefs.

Greenberg’s voice

Forbes hears from serial restaurateur Jerry Greenberg of Sugarfish/KazuNori, HiHo Cheeseburger, and Uovo on what it takes to run so many different projects at once, and the commonalities between them all.

One year in

Eataly has turned one out in Century City. The sprawling Italian market and restaurant compound is doing a series of fun events on Saturday, and yes there will be wine and food.

New names

Chef Kurt Steeber is in at Rye Fox, the new chicken and whiskey restaurant in the old BLD space on Beverly. Steeber spent time over the years at places like Feed Body & Soul in Venice and Lido at Dolphin Bay up in Pismo Beach on the Central Coast.

The guide

Kris Yenbamroong takes on Hollywood for this latest video installment from Vice. He stops by Adam Perry Lang’s place to check out the meat caves, hits Baroo one last time (RIP), and generally rolls through the city looking smooth.
