Zad bagels for all

Good news for Beverly Hills bagel lovers, as Alfred Coffee owner Josh Zad has managed to revive the recipes and design aesthetic of bygone bakery St. Urbain Street Bagels. The two-decade-old bagel maker closed back in 2016, but Zad has managed to work with the appropriate parties to bring them back for the Beverly Hills location of Alfred Coffee only.

More than just the collection of sentimental bagels for Beverly Hills types, Zad is also using lox from Wexler’s Deli to make full-on AM bagel sandwiches as of a few days ago. The bagels are available daily until they run out.

APL hires up

Adam Perry Lang’s long-awaited steakhouse in Hollywood is almost ready, and now it seems the team is hiring up for a variety of positions. Just check out this throwback photo of Lang himself as he asks for resumes.

Uncle Paulie’s business

Food & Wine is all over Uncle Paulie’s Deli, the newish East Coast-style Italian shop along Beverly. They go in-depth with the owners to discuss the deli culture on both coasts, and what it means to make (and eat) a true Italian cold cut combo.

Tsubaki x Dodgers

Echo Park’s Tsubaki is once again offering Dodger fans a great meal option before game day, with a $20 special that includes buttermilk fried chicken, tofu salad with little gems, and yaki-onigiri. Beers will be $5 and draft sake $6 during all home games, and those dining before first pitch can actually leave their car with the valet for only $6.

Dining in LA

The New York Times is back to discuss the state of dining in Los Angeles, but this time in person. The panel event will go down at the Line Hotel in Koreatown on April 10, and feature author Melissa Clark alongside Jessica Koslow, Niki Nakayama, and Susan Feniger.

L&E rises to the occasion

There’s a new vibe to the upstairs bar at L&E Oyster Bar in Silver Lake. The property just got approve for a full liquor license, and has flipped its space slightly under set decorator Sara Philpott. Expect classic cocktails and a completely overhauled food menu, shown below.
