Food from Little Fatty

Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

The growth is real

Expansions are underway in Mar Vista, as Little Fatty and the attached Accomplice bar look to take over the frontage of an old discount store next door. The plan is to join up all the square footage on that block to allow the whole restaurant/bar complex to grow from 40 to 80 seats, with food still coming out of the original Little Fatty kitchen at the end of the room(s). The project is likely to take a few months, ending in March or April of 2019. Former lead Accomplice bartender Gaby Mlynarczyk, meanwhile, is now running the program at the Hearth & Hound in Hollywood.

That sandwich

Konbi’s egg salad sandwich has been clogging up Instagram feeds for weeks now, so much so that Grubstreet just officially declared that the simple Japanese-style sandwich has “won Instagram” this year.

New menu

Michael Voltaggio is back in the spotlight, cooking up a dinner at vegan restaurant Crossroads Kitchen next Monday. Check out the menu for the $65 affair below.

Iraqi eats

LA Times tracks down some great food in Little Baghdad, an enclave of Iraqi immigrants found in San Diego County, particularly communities like El Cajon.

Gone for now

A Sylmar mariscos restaurant named Catch 818 is down for the count following a large strip mall fire yesterday. The brand new restaurant had only opened its doors one month before.

Ice cream for good

Bay Area ice cream hit Humphry Slocombe is settling into its Abbot Kinney home nicely. The company is using the Venice location as an LA home base for its 10 year anniversary plans on December 28, which will see free scoops all day long and a charitable element with money going to support Homeboy Industries.
