An ugly circumstance

West Hollywood bar the Bayou was forced to reckon with some anti-semitic graffiti on its property late last year. Owner Graham Northwood told Wehoville that on December 29 he found the words “Hitler was right” scrawled across a mural at the address on Santa Monica Boulevard, with no sign of who had left the hateful message or why. Thankfully the slur was quickly painted over, though this isn’t the first time an LA-area bar has been the target of anti-Semitic defacement.

Facing the Test

Paso Robles-based fine dining restaurant Six Test Kitchen is opening up the books for February this week. The 12-seat restaurant is a hard ticket to get, so best to try to book early.

Behold the legacy

Here’s Wehoville again, this time with a fun look at the family that founded the former French Market on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. The property is now being redeveloped, but the history of the place lives on.

Defining an era

LA Times has a list out of the most influential and genre-defining foods of the 2010’s, from avocado toast and the Cronut to La Croix and hot chicken.

A troubling new year

A homeless man fatally stabbed another diner at Skid Row-adjacent restaurant Margarita’s Place, reports KTLA. Police are looking for the assailant.

Another in the books

It looks like Family Style Food Fest is indeed coming back for 2020, per the event’s Twitter page.
