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.
While looking for things to do in L.A., the one thing you can never forget is the incredible array of food options. There are more restaurants than you will know what to do with in L.A., as the city features every ethnicity and price-range and taste imaginable.
Did you not get your latke quotient filled this week? This is the last night to get Suzanne Tracht's special latkes at Jar.
Unless you recently sold 66 pages to Random House for $3.7 million dollars, you're probably feeling a different kind of flush this holiday season -- the burning anxiety of having just unloaded tons of money on gifts you oh-so-badly need but can't afford.
Traversing this month's landscape of holiday cheer is a full-time job. Not to mention your actual job, your social life, and the fact that you can't pay for any of it. Never fear, we weeded through this weekend's onslaught to give you the best of the best.
