Passover is lit

There’s an awesome new pastrami pop-up from Ugly Drum happening on Friday, April 6 at the tail end of Passover. The “secret deli” party at Cofax on Fairfax will feature pastrami sandwiches, burnt ends, latkes, matzo ball soup, chocolate babka, and more. Check out the full menu of options below.

Greyhound game day

Highland Park’s The Greyhound Bar & Grill is all in not just on Dodger opening day, but the whole season. All games will be televised there and offer happy hour options like $11.50 for a pound of wings and a beer, plus $36 margarita pitchers and $6 add-on shops of Jameson.

A new chef in town

1 Pico restaurant in Santa Monica has a new chef de cuisine: David Almany. The chef has spent time with the Mozza team after jumping to Singapore for years to open a brand-expanding restaurant there back in 2010.

More great options

Looks like Orleans & York is joining up with the returned Earle’s Grill on Crenshaw to form a one-two punch of popular South LA flavors.

Living at the Langham

The gorgeous Langham Pasadena is hosting a night of upscale food and fine music from the Pasadena Symphony, right out on their iconic lawn. Tickets for the early evening affair on April 19 run $150 a pop.

Taste of the Nation again

One of the city’s most well-attended charity-focused food festivals is back. Taste of the Nation goes down on June 3 at Media Park in Culver City, and general admission tickets are $110.

Groundwork to Larchmont

After some time away from Larchmont, Groundwork Coffee has once again returned to the tony neighborhood with an all-new cafe opening Friday. The shop lands at 150 N. Larchmont and will keep daily hours from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., serving both food and drinks.
