More pizza to know, always

Fresh off the heels of the Valley’s new location of Gino’s East comes Patxi’s, a Bay Area export that also does a variety of Chicago-style deep dish pizzas. This new restaurant sits at L.A. Live, though, one of the city’s most touristed destinations. Expect hours from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (or 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday) at 1011 S. Figueroa St. The company also has locations across Seattle, San Diego, Denver and beyond, and a LA-area second location is coming to Porter Ranch next year.

He really can do it all

LA Taco has a fascinating story out on the chef from LA’s Hop Woo, who spent years cooking in Mexico before making his way to the States. The time there has helped to influence the way he runs the Chinatown restaurant to this day.

Good news for Nicole fans

Pastry chef Nicole Rucker’s next project has been announced. It’s called Fat and Flour, and it’s starting life as a pie and sweets pop-up at Grand Central Market this weekend.

The big moment

Food & Wine is all over LA’s current obsession with caviar, from the banana pancake situation at Angler to Michael’s in Santa Monica.

Hot in the family

The Guardian is out with a piece on America’s hot chicken obsession, tracking the roots of the dish from the Prince family in Nashville out to to the new Hotville Chicken in Los Angeles.

Exhaustive exhaustion

LAist has compiled a rather thorough list of late night restaurants (with hours) across greater LA, separated by neighborhood. It’s very helpful, if a bit overwhelming.

A new place to catch the game

Modern gastropub General Admission has opened up at 3311 Cahuenga Blvd. The big, dark space holds room for bar fare like burgers and quesadillas and craft beer, with lots of TVs to boot.
