    October 21, 2011 | 11:22 am

    Lunch in the small, red-tiled Paprika Grill in Tarzana, with its short, kosher Mediterranean menu, seems like a simple proposition. But everything looks and smells so good: shwarma, shakshouka, sabich, pargiot and three kinds of crispy schnitzel. Although owner-chef Tommy Marudi was...

  • Go Kosher!

    July 21, 2011 | 5:41 pm

    “That’s just the way we do it.”
