Koreatown at night

Koreatown’s popular annual night market is returning on June 15 and 16. The two-day affair features live music, art, fashion, and more, but the main focus is on the food, where a collection of hawker-style outdoor market vendors grill up meat, make swirled fried potatoes on a stick, fold dumplings, and more. Expect meals from Made in Brooklyn Pizza, Sunny Blue, Belly Bombz, Seoul Sausage, Kogi, and others. Tickets are available now.

Dinah’s still delivers

LA Times has a nice story on the family-run Glendale location of Dinah’s, the famous fried chicken restaurant celebrating more than 50 years in the business. Go give it a read.

Happy hours

Atwater Village’s Good Measure is doing an even more robust happy hour, running Sunday through Thursday and offering half-off beers and bar snacks, plus discounts on wine.

Food hall out of nowhere

There’s a pop-up food hall coming to life in Santa Monica on Sunday, June 10. The LAEats event will feature food from Eric Greenspan, Bolton’s Nashville Hot Chicken, and more.

Kali collabs, as always

Another month, another Kali collaboration dinner. This one features Ian Gresik of The Arbour in Pasadena, Wilfrid Hocquet of Georgie, and Chris Phelps from Salt’s Cure. Tickets are $95 a head, or $125 with wine.

Wine on the Westside

The longstanding Buffalo Club in Santa Monica has started a new weekly Wednesday wine series. That means six-pour flights for just $25, available every week and done with a rotating theme.

Goodbye to a legend

Philippe’s in Downtown has one less familiar face on the line, as the restaurant’s four-decade-long lead cook is retiring. The restaurant posted a heartfelt note on his departure below.
