Slice Kelly Bone 1 comment

At LaRocco's Pizzera, the Spinaci e Pomodoro highlights fresh produce. The baby spinach leaves and halved cherry tomatoes are lightly touched with heat, drawing out flavor while retaining their vibrant color.

Hangover Helper: Corned Beef Hash at S & W Country Diner, Los Angeles

Drinks Farley Elliott 4 comments

Two things are unequivocally true about S & W: the breakfast menu is expansive, and the word is already out. Waves of weekend patrons crash against the pantry walls. First the Sun Risers, then the Active Mothers of Small Children, followed by Cops and Other People Who For Some Reason Are Up As Early As Cops. Luckily, they've all mostly cleared out by brunch o'clock, which means a short wait is all that separates you from plastic tablecloths and the necessary ingredients to cure what ails ya. More

A Sandwich a Day Kelly Bone 8 comments

Tucked beneath a loft building on an unassuming corner just outside of downtown Culver City, soccer moms, movie studio execs, Los Angeles Times food critic S. Irene Virbila and schmucks like me mingle in the causal café setting of L'Epicerie Market. This neighborhood joint sports one of the best happy hours in the area—with glasses of French wines and snacks priced at only $3 each—but more importantly, they make one of the best breakfast sandwiches on the Westside.
