Razza arrival

One of greater New York City’s best pizza-makers is coming to Pizzana in Brentwood on April 17. Dan Richer from Razza Pizza Artigianale in Jersey City, NJ is popping up with a family-style collaboration dinner that runs $95 a head plus tax, though that includes food, wine, and gratuity. There are two communal seatings, one at 6 p.m. and one at 8:15 p.m.

Back for more

The annual LA Times Food Bowl is back with a month of different culinary events, including a big opening night on April 30, the ongoing May night market in Downtown, and a barbecue party on May 12.

New names

Echo Park’s partially-vegan Mohawk Bend has a new chef to know about; Caroline Concha. Concha hails from Beelman’s, the Downtown restaurant and bar that Tony Yanow (owner of Mohawk Bend) and the ABC group bought up a while back.

Choi chronicles

Variety is all over Roy Choi’s new KCET/Tastemade show Broken Bread, calling it a “food-activism” series that will debut on KCET on May 15.

Ice cream connections

Venice’s the Rose is teaming up with Humphry Slocombe for a new ice cream collaboration, available all this month. And on Friday at 6 p.m., the ice cream shop is throwing a party to celebrate the joint affair, complete with swag from the Rose and more.

Coming alive

H Club has opened in Hollywood. The members-only space features Kris Morningstar as its chef, though dining there isn’t an option for the general public.

Up and running

The Alameda Cocktail Club is set to open tomorrow at the Manufactory in Downtown. The outdoor bar at the Row is attached to the Alameda Supper Club, the Chris Bianco/Tartine collaboration restaurant, and it will focus on light snacks (think turkey sandwiches, potato chips, olives, etc.) as well as mostly $16, glasses of wine, and beer. The opening date is tomorrow, and hours run 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. (11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday), with an opening at 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
