  • Fairfax District: Coffee shops and hungry, hungry hip-hop

    June 18, 2014 | 1:04 pm

    Both Bludso’s Bar-&-Que on La Brea Avenue and The Golden State on Fairfax Avenue are a couple of the rare restaurants where men feel comfortable eating alone. It’s not that these solo male diners comprise the majority of the clientele, but they’re always there — a phenomenon seen...

  • From which seeps the essence of Jeff’s Gourmet

    By Louis Keene

    June 29, 2012 | 12:04 pm

    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...

  • Being Sad, the End of an Era & Sex with Trolls

    By Ilana Angel

    February 16, 2012 | 10:32 am

    I have been sad for a couple of days.  Not depressed, just sad.  It was the anniversary of my dad’s passing, my son is growing up, I miss my family, and I have decisions to make about my work, but none of that is the cause of my sadness.  I was just sad.  I have been crying easily...

  • Waste Not Want Not

    By Annie Korzen

    September 6, 2011 | 12:34 pm

    I am allergic to waste: I just can’t abide the thought of perfectly usable things being dumped into the garbage.  Besides the ecological consequences, there’s the offense to my compulsively thrifty nature.  If there’s such a thing as reincarnation (which I strongly doubt) I...

  • MORE FREEBIES

    By Annie Korzen

    August 8, 2011 | 3:38 pm

    MYSTERIOUS CLIPSHere’s a puzzling fact: for some reason, there are always perfectly good paper clips lying on the sidewalk.  Unless you’re germ-phobic - which is one of the few fears I do not have – you can pick up all manner of paper clips in varying sizes and colors any day...

  • HELPFUL HINTS FOR RESTAURANT ADDICTS

    By Annie Korzen

    June 19, 2011 | 1:20 pm

    The internet is a treasure trove of restaurant discounts. 

    My fave is www.RESTAURANT.COM where you pay ten bucks for a twenty-five dollar restaurant voucher, but they go on sale regularly for two dollars.  Someone is paying me twenty-three dollars to eat out.  That’s a deal no...

  • EATING OUT ON THE CHEAP

    By Annie Korzen

    June 15, 2011 | 1:12 pm

    I often picture myself as a guest on “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” and when James Lipton asks, “What is your favorite word?” my answer is “Restaurant!”  I would pay extra for a house without a kitchen. I love eating out. I love the whole ritual of studying the menu,...

  • L.A.‘s gourmet kosher makeover

    By Amy Klein

    February 15, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    At the new Shilo's steakhouse on Pico Boulevard, concentric circles of color surround the caviar: green onion on the outside, yellow egg yolk sprinkled on the inner rim, followed by chopped egg whites peppered with blinis and tortillas and topped ceremoniously by a mound of...
  • Buenos Aires Let Me Dance to Your Beat

    By Anthea Gerrie

    March 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    In Buenos Aires you wouldn't know about the Argentine economy's disastrous crash -- except, perhaps, by chatting with your taxi driver and discovering he was a former tycoon.

    BA, as old hands call it, has retained its prosperous appearance and cosmopolitan cool, and it remains...

  • The Good, the Bad and the Confusing

    By Ed Shevick

    February 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    I am a senior citizen. I'm 82, look 65 and feel like 40. It is a very confusing time of life. People assume that you are over the hill. You know that you are still vital and have the ability to contribute to society.

    At the age of 50, I classified myself as lower-middle age. As the...

  • Charitable Yums

    Thinking about doing something for Israel but don't have time or inclination to go there and volunteer in person? This Sunday you can do your bit for the beleaguered Jewish state by chowing down in local restaurants.

    On May 2, 20 of Los Angeles' kosher restaurants will participate...

    Care for an authentic Cuban mojito at the L'chaim bar? How about Israeli salad, matzah ball soup and cheese blintzes?

    They're all now on the menu at the Hotel Raquel, Cuba's first boutique hotel catering specifically to adventurous Jewish tourists.

  • Borscht Again! Jerry’s Deli Reopens

    By Marc Ballon

    October 2, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    About a year and a half ago, Lisa Thomas drove her father to Jerry's Famous Deli in Studio City, one of their favorite restaurants, to have a birthday brunch for him. However, when they arrived at the deli, they saw fire engines everywhere. The San Fernando Valley eatery was ablaze,...

  • The Festival of Lite

    By Mike Levy

    November 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Yes, the time of the fatty foods is upon us. But eight days of latkes and jelly doughnuts can be the least of problems for those who celebrate their holidays by eating out.

    "The bad news is, most restaurant meals are high in calories and fat," said nutritionist Anita Jones. "If...
