    Something about being a claustrophobic high school upperclassman lent itself to my spending Saturday nights at Bibi’s Warmstone Bakery and Cafe back in my Shalhevet heyday. I wasn’t alone at the little Israeli joint on the corner of Pico and Livonia, of course – that was the...

    I hadn’t been to Shanghai Diamond Garden in years. That’s because I’ve never been a fan of Chinese food, but their orange chicken always brings me back. This time with family, however, I decided to try something different. The Hunan Beef was not nearly as spicy as advertised; in...

    College is about learning how to fit in, or—if you’re talented enough—finding out you don’t have to. As someone who fails to make the latter group, I often find myself ordering black bean cheeseburgers and pattyless patty melts to keep up with friends who eat traif with aplomb. When...

    We all remember the first time Subway went Jewish -- his name was Jared Fogle. Through a program of turkey club sandwiches for lunch and veggie subs for dinner as well as exercise, this overweight Jew's story helped Subway's sales skyrocket.

    If, on the Friday afternoon of Simchat Torah, you happened to be on Pico Boulevard, a couple of blocks west of Doheny Boulevard, and you were looking for Nathan's Famous hot dogs or Label's Table deli, you probably would have noticed about 50 Jews of all ages and ethnic backgrounds...
