2012 inspired a new wave of healthy Los Angeles restaurants. A post office morphed into a social house, a blue cow was in a kitchen, and a "living food" academy came to life.
Don't worry, broke girls, we're feeling more well-adjusted to our non-holiday lifestyle now that we're suddenly halfway through January. What better way to celebrate our new sunny outlook, than to bundle up and take ourselves on the week-long joyride that we deserve?
In addition to the regular menu, starting tonight and every Monday, Cooks County offers three-course comfort food menus for only $25.
Fleming's is a wonderful surprise, with its elegant ambiance, style and sophistication. Personal attention and caring service make a visit here something which I will want to repeat often.
There are a couple of weeks before DineLA's restaurant week begins, but participating restaurants in Beverly Hills are currently celebrating California Restaurant Week now through January 13.
Somewhere between the ethereality of the pop-up and the seeming permanence of the traditional restaurant, there exists a void that is beginning to be filled.
We know; it's been a while. It feels like we haven't worked a full week since mid-December. (And, actually, that's more or less true.) But fret not; we assure you that you can make it through the next five days of workplace brutality -- with a little help from yours truly, of course.
Before reality hits hard and we actually have to work a full week again, we're planning on spending the first weekend of lucky 2013 all over town: checking out shows, trying new restaurants and feeding our newly-rested minds with art and movies.
On Rodeo is an ideal restaurant/bar to entertain friends -- especially from out of town. It's also just a great place to enjoy a nice dinner -- or breakfast or lunch, for that matter.
Tortilla Republic spices up the Mexican restaurant scene the same way that West Hollywood spices up the L.A. nightlife scene.
These days, gastropubs spring up as often as the indigestion that accompanies them. It's critical that they distinguish themselves in some manner, and that's exactly what The Morrison does. It's something new. And more than that, it's something good.
You may have been hoping for some sort of zombie apocalypse last weekend (maybe you really, really hate your job), but we made it through the end of the world and are now entering the final days of 2012. We may as well go as crazy as possible in this final weekend of 2012.
Whether you celebrate Meatless Mondays or not, tonight get a special three-course menu based on local author Joseph Shuldiner's Pure Vegan cookbook at Mohawk Bend tonight.
Don't get internet-induced FOMO just yet, because we've done the near-impossible and figured out a way for you to stay in town and have more (or at least as much) fun as those who've checked out of town early.
If you aren't knee-deep in goodwill towards man, you are, like most of the Internet, probably knee-deep in goodwill towards Ikea Monkey instead. This little guy and his subsequent web frenzy were basically what got us through this week.
Tis the season... of Best Of lists. Never to shy away from the holiday spirit, I am very pleased to present Unemployed Eater's very own enumeration.
