    Sometimes even moving to a different part of town can’t keep me from attending one of those free, exclusive tasting events I’m invited to from time to time. So last night as I carted several boxes of records from my old domicile to my new one, I raced home and showered and sped across town to The Grove. That’s where Blaze Pizza is […]

    Sometime between my review of Slater’s 50/50 and my review of Daniel I realized: Oh shit. These tongue-in-cheek “distinguished gourmand” posts are actually starting to be…you know…distinguished. I’ve been really lucky to have been able to eat at some of the best restaurants in the country. In fact, Blue Hill At Stone Barns (#54), the aforementioned Daniel (#40) and Per Se (#30) all appear on the list […]

Because, the theory is, if you’re impressed (and maybe even if you’re […]

    Of course b.o.s. has been on my radar for a while. I read about the opening on EaterLA maybe three or four months ago. My eyes widened as I read about the “modern nose-to-tail” menu that promised brains and tripe. More recently both LA Weekly and the LA Times ran reviews. That in combination with a Facebook post by my friend Erin alerting me […]

    I’m very excited that I’ll be dining at a new “nose-to-tail” establishment tonight with one of my offal-loving buddies. The fact that I haven’t written a food review since my Per Se review in November disappoints me. I’ve had some pretty good meals since then! Allow me to elaborate, if you will. Unfortunately almost all these restaurants are in Los Angeles, so if you […]
