More big names

The upcoming Family Style Food Festival is really taking shape, thanks to the addition of a couple of big New York City restaurants. The September 15 party on Fairfax will now include slices from pepperoni kingpins Prince St. Pizza, as well as full pastrami sandwiches from Katz’s Deli. In fact, the longtime East Coast operation is flying out three of its carvers just for the event, to make sandwiches on site. As for Prince St. Pizza, the Instagram-worthy slice shop is coming to LA once again thanks to the Off the Menu app, and customers who use the app can not only get their slice for free, but can get 20% off their ticket to the festival overall.

The Hundreds, the apparel company behind the Family Style food festival, will also run a program called Next In Line, where chefs like Evan Funke and Tim Hollingsworth nominate one of their young line cooks to produce a dish for the event. A winner will be judged, and will walk away with a $10,000 prize. The Family Style Food Fest goes down September 15 at 130 N. Fairfax.

One last hurrah

L & E Oyster Bar in Silver Lake is hosting a big blowout seafood bonanza tonight, beginning at 7 p.m. The one-night affair includes bumps of caviar, $1 oysters, $5 glasses of wine, and more.

Always trust the cart

Little Grace supper club returns to Koreatown this Friday night, with plans for a dim sum-esque dinner party that includes more than a dozen dishes available from carts that meander the room. Sounds like a blast.

Chicken on the move

Las Vegas outfit Bok Bok Chicken is expanding further into Los Angeles. The restaurant group first took over the closed former location of the Mighty in Downtown, and now Toddrickallen says they’re heading for a strip mall in Culver City, too.

Gone for good

The Goods Mart in Silver Lake has closed. The small Sunset Boulevard retail shop sold coffee, burritos from La Palma, and other local food and non-food items, and even expanded into New York City. Now the East Coast outlet is the only one left.

South Bay drinks

LA Magazine has lots of love for Madre in Torrance. The modern Oaxacan restaurant serves up more than 300 different kinds of mezcal, thanks to eager owner Ivan Vasquez.

Doing good

Kismet’s Sara Kramer is partnering up with Sweetfin on a new bowl for charity. The Middle Eastern-leaning collaboration includes albacore, harissa yogurt, and more, with a portion of proceeds benefitting F.E.A.S.T.

Pizza for the masses

There’s a great deal on pizza happening today in Studio City. East Coast export LBK Pizza is celebrating one year in business with a slew of all-day deals, including half-off pizzas and $1 slices (limit two per person). Expect a line.
