Big, big bites

Bourbon Steak is bringing the beef, launching a large new item that certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. The upscale Glendale steakhouse now carries its own version of the famous Ol’ ‘96er, a take on the 96-ounce steak John Candy eats in the 1988 film The Great Outdoors. The prime rib roast is meant to feed four to six people naturally, and comes with sides and a tableside carving preparation. The best part: Diners don’t need to call ahead to preorder, Bourbon Steak will keep the meat on hand for anyone who swings in to try it out — just be sure to allow nearly an hour to cook.

Going Coconut’s

Downtown Hawaiian restaurant Coconut’s Fish Cafe is closing up for the rest of the year. The sunny seafood shack couldn’t compete with the construction happening right out front, so they’re waiting for things to wrap up before giving DTLA another go.

Party on the block

Venice is playing host to the upcoming Abbot Kinney Festival on September 30. The outdoor street party will feature live music, shopping, and a ton of food from restaurants on the strip.

Alfred arrival

Alfred Tea is up and running in Brentwood. The colorful shop with all the slogans first opened its doors on Monday at 11908 San Vicente Blvd.

Barbecue, but fast

L’Assiette Steak Frites on Melrose is switching things up with an upcoming barbecue event on September 17. The plan is to offer a three-course menu with varying options like baby back ribs or barbecue chicken, plus unlimited beer and some French wine for just $55.

Serious flavors

Downtown hotspot Shibumi is having a busy month. Chef David Schlosser was featured on David Chang’s podcast, and now his restaurant is working up a Wagyu and whiskey dinner on September 16. There are two seatings, and each runs $185 a head, plus more for add-ons and tax and tip.

Momed moment

Momed in Atwater Village is starting up a new happy hour, with deals that run from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Friday, and again from 8:30 p.m. to close. The happy hour menu is below, and is available only at the bar.
