  • West Hollywood’s Ta-eem Grill, a spot for vegan and meat eaters

    By Rob Eshman

    February 20, 2013 | 11:22 am

    My favorite vegan food in Los Angeles these days comes from a small, crowded restaurant on Melrose with a giant skewer of animal flesh rotating in the window.

    In a city that seems to be enthralled with new vegan and conscious-food temples, like Café Gratitude and Feed Body &...

  • Atoning for the sin of rushing dinner to get to Kol Nidre

    By Linda Morel

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    I consider Yom Kippur eve the sandwich holiday. Not because I would ever serve my family and friends sandwiches before going to synagogue on the eve of a solemn fast. I see the start of Yom Kippur this way, because it's sandwiched between two days of Rosh Hashanah celebrations and...

    September 14, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A recent trip to Italy made me aware of the wonderful possibilities of growing your own lush, flavorful garden-fresh food. The villa where we stayed was entirely self-sufficient, with magnificent varieties of produce, eggs gathered from the hen house and the proprietors even making...
  • A Man for All Seasonings

    By Hank Rosenfeld

    June 1, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The Rabbi of Chelm was teaching a class,

    "Rabbi," a student asked. "Why is the sea so salty?"

    "Idiot," the Rabbi intoned. "Because it's full of herring."

    Like many baby-boomers today, I sometimes feel older than Keith Richards up a palm tree. So when Irv and Eddie, my better...

    With the flurry that surrounds a b'nai mitzvah celebration, we often lose sight that this day -- this passage from childhood to adulthood -- will be one of the most meaningful memories of his or her life.

    The memories will not be of the buffet table that boasted an ice sculpture...

  • There’s the Rub—in Tel Aviv

    By Howard Blume

    February 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Tierra couldn't be more Los Angeles. But for this nouveau combination of mostly organic restaurant, massage parlor and oxygen bar, you'll have to go to Tel Aviv, where this combo venue clearly out-Hollywoods Hollywood.

    The only thing missing -- so far -- is a Hollywood-style patron,...

  • Recipes Add Spice to New Party Trend

    By Beverly Levitt

    August 11, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Although today's bar mitzvah parties are often as elaborate as yesterday's weddings, there's a new trend on the horizon -- a, noisy, jubilant oneg Shabbat and lunch directly after the ceremony, and a quiet, intimate dinner at home for a few close friends and family at night.

    For many years, my daughter and I were lucky to be invited out for Passover. Besides joining a big group of people, and sampling a variety of Passover foods, I relished the added benefit of not having to plan, shop and cook for the daunting seder (first and second night) meals....
  • Make Menu Shine With Splash of Wine

    March 17, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Purim is always a special celebration for the children -- they dress up in costumes, sing and dance. The grown-ups have their rewards, too, because it is the only holiday when everyone is encouraged to drink a generous amount of wine.

    This year, the theme of our dinner is foods...

    Are you the designated bridal shower giver this season? Don't let the happy occasion of your daughter, your best friend's daughter or even your fourth cousin-once-removed's daughter give you the jitters. This is a time to be joyful. A time to be extravagant. A time to spend, to...

    When Cedric Marmet lived in Paris, he watched the crowds line up outside Place L'entrecote, a famous tiny restaurant with a limited menu.

    March 11, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    So you're going to have a mitzvah -- whether it is a bar or a bat, the planning begins early. Way before Hebrew school age, you will hear at least one grandfather wistfully thinking aloud at about age 5, "In eight years, we will have a bar mitzvah."

    From there it continues directly...

    On Monday evening, we will celebrate Purim, the holiday that commemorates the liberation of the Jews in ancient Persia, and reminds us of the triumph of Queen Esther and her uncle, Mordecai, over Haman, the wicked prime minister.

    November 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    "Entertaining is a lot like gardening," Linda Burghardt said. "You can't make mistakes."

  • Dining Out…

    By Rob Eshman

    December 11, 1997 | 7:00 pm

    As a rule, you don't go to museums to eat. Unless you're like me -- someone who, when push comes to shove, prefers great food to great art. I make no apologies: The last time I visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, I ate a tasteless, watery and expensive fruit salad in the...
