Smorgasburg, the popular Sunday outdoor market and food bonanza, hasn’t had the ability to reopen due to the pandemic. In lieu of doing its normal weekend market, Smorgasburg is partnering with Grubhub to setup a special delivery situation with a few of its longtime vendors, including Tacos 1986, Cena Vegan, Amazebowls, Maury’s Bagels, and Spoon & Pork. Starting September 26 and 27, and extending for six weekends, Smorgasburg fans can order the following from Grubhub depending on their part of town.

Hollywood/Koreatown/Silver Lake: Banh Oui, Guelaguetza/Love Micheladas, Love Hour, Maury’s Bagels, Spoon & Pork, Tacos 1986, Ugly Drum

Pasadena: Amazebowls, Daddy’s Chicken Shack, Mama Musubi, Me + Crepe, Tacos 1986

Westwood/West LA: Bombay Frankie Company, Tacos 1986, T&T Lifestyle (only Saturdays)

Downtown: Amazebowls, Cena Vegan, Los Cochinitos, Paratta, Porchetta Republic, Shrimp Daddy, Sticky Rice, Tacos 1986

Deliveries from these vendors will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends (with some exceptions) until November 1. Those who use the code SMORG2020 will get $5 off a delivery order of at least $15.

In other news:

— Kato, which has been doing everything from jewelry box chirashi to a la carte dishes, is transitioning to a $118 tasting menu that will only be available for on-site outdoor dining. This means delivery and takeout will no longer be available at the celebrated Taiwanese restaurant led by chef Jon Yao. Reservations can be made on Resy or by emailing the restaurant.

— Long Beach Post reporter Brian Addison has a piece on how Pine Avenue’s closure means less room for cars and more space for outdoor dining.

— Slab is now delivering barbecue to the “Eastside” of Koreatown, Hollywood, Silver Lake, and Downtown (none of which are east of the LA River).

— Time Out has a guide to mooncakes in Los Angeles as part of Taiwanese and Cantonese mid-autumn celebrations.

— Jeni’s Ice Cream fan Florence Pugh (and actress for such films as Midsommar and Little Women) got the chance to make ice cream live with Jeni Britton Bauer. Pugh says she became a fan of the brand by walking over to its Los Feliz location for scoops. Watch Pugh make ice cream on her Instagram live:
