Plus Tartine in progress, and love for Friends & Family

Los Angeles loses

Yet again the New York Times has managed to misrepresent the dining scene in Los Angeles. In a new story about luxury vacationing in LA, the East Coast paper of record manages to shout out the Chinese food in Montebello (perhaps meaning Monterey Park instead?). They did smartly offer up a shout out to Howlin’ Ray’s in Chinatown, but in a separate bit managed to entirely leave out Koreatown, instead calling the neighborhood Mid-Wilshire. Sigh.

One year in

Hollywood’s Friends & Family is turning one as of today. Swing through for free slices of birthday cake, some raffle action, coffee, and more. Oh, and apparently Friends & Family officially has their beer and wine license now.

Tea for Hollywood

A fancy new tea parlor is coming to Hollywood any day now. It’s called Bohemia Tea Parlour, and it serves a variety of teas from across the globe. Signage is already up at 7525 Sunset Blvd., and construction continues.

All three meals

TimeOut headed to Petit Trois Sherman Oaks to eat all three meals in one day. The result is a wide-ranging story about Ludo’s presence in the kitchen, the rise of the Valley dining scene, and why bringing along a friend for dinner is always a good idea.

Shawarma sensation

TzaBar in Encino could be LA’s new destination for shawarma, says Ventura Blvd. Magazine. The place is tucked into the Super Sal Market but makes some of LA’s best casual Israeli food right now.

Sotto x Italy

Sotto is hosting a dinner with Enzo Coccia on Monday, May 14. The Italian pizza superstar is running a $55 four-course meal alongside chef de cuisine Craig Towe, with tons of classic Italian flavors throughout.

A ways to go

Looks like there’s still a lot of work to be done over at Tartine at the ROW. Check out these Instagram sneak shots of the place in progress now.
