First Look: The South Bay’s Newest Dining Destination Is a Chic, Baja-Inspired Escape

Esperanza Cocina de la Playa exudes luxurious coastal vibes, plus a Sonoran-inspired menu. Newly arrived in the South Bay, Esperanza Cocina de la Playa takes diners south of the border with a stunning new contemporary space that transforms the former Shark’s Cove sports bar with a sleek, wave-like facade, soft lighting, a striking bar, and lavish lounge seating on the interior. Located just two doors down from the popular Love & Salt restaurant, and not far from the team’s sister restaurant, Palmilla, in Hermosa Beach, the new culinary hot spot is situated in the heart of Manhattan Beach.

Black Restaurant Week is back with a new grant program and a bigger reach

Warren Luckett, Falayn Ferrell and Derek Robinson want you to have a favorite Black-owned restaurant— just like you have a favorite spot for tacos or burgers or pasta. To help, they founded Black Restaurant Week, a national event spotlighting Black-owned restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and other culinary establishments where participants cook up special dishes, combos and prix-fixe menus for one week of the year. The third Los Angeles iteration is scheduled for Aug. 6-15 and will feature new restaurants and food trucks, plus an expanded reach into more of Southern California — and a new grant program to help local business.

Best Chinese Food At Yang Chow

The very first Yang Chow opened its doors in 1977, in the heart of Chinatown. Located beneath the Bing Wong Hotel, it was a former diner that was converted into a two room eatery. Started by a family of five brothers, the restaurant was named after their hometown. The Yun family comes from generations of cooks and restauranteurs.

I road-tripped to In-N-Out's hamburger museum in Los Angeles

I’ve got a handful of unpopular opinions — recently, I scandalized an entire room of people by telling them that, while I acknowledge his immense talent, I don’t love Prince’s music — but my most unpopular one, by a mile, is that I don’t like In-N-Out Burger very much. Especially...

Incredible Italian Food At Jon & Vinny's

Jon & Vinny's is a newfound favorite. Come here for Breakfast or Lunch/Dinner and you will not be disappointed. If you do decide to come by for dinner, start with their garlic bread. It's absolutely delicious and I always ask for extra olive oil to dip it into as well as balsamic.

Los Angeles’s coffee scene is indeed one of the best and it has certainly come a long way since the days of sugary syrups and poorly foamed milk.

Review: This Atwater Village sushi bar is what L.A. fine dining is all about

Every piece of nigiri shaped by Morihiro Onodera’s hands reminds me to appreciate the humbler beauty beneath the shiny overlay. In matters of sushi, the sea treasures will always vie for the limelight: uni in the soft shades of Renoir’s oranges, tuna glowing deep reds and creamy pinks, saba cut to accentuate a curving streak of silvery skin. Onodera — “Mori” or “Mori-san” to the fan base he’s accrued over nearly 40 years in Los Angeles — pays the rice underneath equal respect. His care begins at the source. Last decade he helped bankroll a farm in Uruguay growing nutty, slightly chewy rice to his proclivities. By next year he’ll be serving a variety he’s commissioned in Iwate prefecture, the region along the northeast coast of Japan’s main island where he grew up.
