Howlin’ x Post Malone
Chinatown hot chicken specialist Howlin’ Ray’s has partnered up with musician Post Malone for a new Postmates delivery project, running this week only from Thursday through Saturday. The plan is for Howlin’ to offer limited delivery (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) from a ghost kitchen in West Hollywood, with options for a $16 classic box that includes a spicy chicken sandwich and fries, or a “Ghost Malone” sandwich made with ghost pepper jack cheese. Fans who want to try the collaboration will only have to fire up the Postmates app (and be within the right delivery radius) and pay, no other strings attached.
New faces, familiar places
Agoura Hills beer stalwart Ladyface is in new hands, some ten years after helping to start the craft revolution in greater Los Angeles, says the VC Star. Owner Cyrena Nouzille has sold the brewery and the restaurant in order to focus on consulting and time with family; new owner Pete Lee will keep both the restaurant and brewery up and running, with updates to come.
Grilling with friends
Tomos Parry from London’s Brat is popping up at Chi Spacca this week for another wood-fired meal, complete with smoked cod roe, anchovy bread, and wood-fired cheesecake.
More and more coffee
Westwood’s Ministry of Coffee is on the expansion path, planning two new locations around greater Los Angeles. The first, per What Now LA, is slated for Downtown’s TCW Tower, and the second is coming to the USC campus (though not the troubled USC Village).
Pho Broadway is closing in January in Chinatown, as the restaurant’s property is slated to be redeveloped soon.
Movies and booze
Here and Now is screening Home Alone and slinging cocktails in the Arts District on December 15.
A big collaboration
Matthew Biancaniello is popping up at N.10 next week on Wednesday and Thursday, continuing his ongoing residency at the Italian restaurant on West Third Street.
