Italian | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Reviews were such a mixed bag for here but negative was mostly for service, I did not find that to be the case. We were greeted right away and seated. Was recommend a wonderful bottle of wine and ordered a few appetizers. Started out with a beef carpaccio, swordfish carpaccio and some steamed mussels and clams. The beef was good but the swordfish outstanding. The juice the mussels were in would have made a great cioppino so we asked for more bread to soak up the broth when finished. Shared the oso buco next and it was huge on a nice risotto. Ended with the panacotta with strawberries. Will be back next time in town. Seems like a neighborhood standard as it was a Wednesday night and filled up around six or so. More

We hadn't been back for awhile and we're thrilled that the food still "Tastes" so good. Four of us each enjoyed our lunches. We especially appreciated the 1/2 price bottle of wine that's offered on Mondays and ordered a great California Chard. It's nice to see that Tastes continues to served really good food for fair prices. More

Seafood | Manhattan Beach / Hermosa Beach, Beach Cities

Excellent service. Recommend the oyster sampler and soft shell crab po' boy. The salads looked great but wasn't sufficiently hungry to try one. FWD describe S itself as a "tiny" restaurant. This is not an exaggeration. Tables are about a newspaper width apart and lip reading skills are required to carry on a conversation with your dining partner across the appropriately tiny table. Still, the seafood is superb and the waitstaff efficient and friendly. R Highly recommend as long as one is not seeking a restaurant in which to have an intimate discussion. More

French | Hollywood, Hollywood

Arriving in the United States in 2001, Émé made his way to Los Angeles as Executive Chef at the highly revered L’Orangerie where he challenged perceptions and French cooking technique by renouncing cream and butter sauces in favor of complex layered emulsions and natural jus. In 2005, Émé embarked on his first solo Los Angeles venture and opened the critically lauded Ortolan on West Third Street, where he showcased his impeccable haute cuisine. Shortly after Ortolan debuted in 2005, Émé was honored by Food & Wine as one of the “10 Best New Chefs” and subsequently earned a Michelin star in 2007. After setting a higher standard for the next generation of French restaurants, Émé is now moving in a new direction by introducing KASS Wine Bar + Restaurant.More

World-renowned Italian Neapolitan pizzeria L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele arrives in Los Angeles early 2019. The first U.S. location of the historic pizzeria featured in the film Eat Pray Love, Antica Pizzeria Da Michele is located in the space which once held Hollywood’s beloved Café Des Artistes. Antica Pizzeria Da Michele will serve traditional Neapolitan pizza, using the same recipes and importing the same ingredients used at its origin restaurant. Upon opening, head pizzaiolo Michele Rubini, who trained in Napoli, will serve the concept’s two classic pizzas, Marinara and Margherita, with plans to expand the menu with the location’s own unique twist in the future. Inspired by Italian courtyards, which serve as central gathering points for locals, guests who visit the all-new Antica Pizzeria Da Michele are seated in “il cortile” the restaurant’s quintessential Hollywood garden—surrounded by lush greenery—where they can view pizzas being prepared.More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
