All the Best Food & Wine From The Taste Los Angeles

The Labor Day Holiday weekend saw thousands of us flock to Paramount Studios in Los Angeles to spend three glorious evenings eating, drinking, sampling and savoring from LA’s best restaurants at the Taste, the Los Angeles Times annual food festival. The Taste has become Los Angeles’s de facto, signature food and wine festival. And for good reason. At no other festival in Los Angeles will you find such an extraordinary roster of restaurants. It’s the perfect event to cross off your 2018 restaurant “must” list in one weekend.

This year’s event paid special tribute to the late, legendary Jonathan Gold. Dozens of chefs created dishes in honor of the Pulitzer Prize winning critic. What a joy to discover so many hidden gems! For those of you couldn’t make it – here are a few of the many highlights from the festival. Your next dinner reservation starts here.

Hope to see you at next year’s Taste!

All the Best Food From the EastSide Food Festival (Photos)

The EastSide Food Fest returned to the legendary Mack Sennett Studios in Silver Lake on Sunday, October 22nd. The annual celebration of the East side’s best restaurants and chefs always draws a huge crowd yet remains remarkably easy to try at least one of every thing from the 35+ vendors who attended this year’s event. Guests are able to sample dishes from local restaurants that may not be on their radar, out of their neighborhood, or over their budget. Trust me, you won’t leave hungry.
