S’mores for all
The southern stretch of Fairfax is getting its own kitschy new bakery soon, called Gotta Have S’More. The longtime online retailer is moving into the brick-and-mortar food service business, opening up at 1066 S. Fairfax Avenue next month, in the Little Ethiopia neighborhood.
Unlike traditional wide-ranging bakeries, Gotta Have S’More is truly just a stop for all things s’mores, the childhood creation of marshmallows, chocolate, and graham cracker. Expect cupcake-sized versions that can be customized for corporate events and birthday parties, plus the addition of coffee and some breakfast options. Lunch is in the works down the line.
Phil and hot chicken

Clean Made for days
There’s a new healthy-eating festival coming to Downtown on May 20. It’s called Clean Made, and it focuses on all things health and wellness, with food from places like Beacon in Echo Park, Locali, Amazebowls, and more.
Sleep no more
The royal wedding is coming up this month, and that means it’s slumber party time at The Cat & Fiddle on Highland. The British pub is hosting a sleepover of sorts, letting in ticketed ($25) diners and drinkers starting at 2 a.m. on May 19 to watch the festivities. Costumes encouraged, and raffle prizes will be rampant.
Grill ‘Em All is known for its outlandish heavy metal burgers, and occasionally the rockers that inspire the Alhambra restaurant’s menu stop in for a bite themselves. Case in point below.
