The Weekender

Silverton’s Gelato, Fight Club and Falafel

Keep your friends close, but your weekends closer.

THAT’S COLD

Nancy Silverton Packs Your Pints Now

Nancy Silverton made you bread. Then she improved everyone’s pizza. But she couldn’t sleep at night with the thought of you going to bed dessertless. So she created a line of gelato and sorbet in flavors like coconut stracciatella, butterscotch budino and spiced Stumptown. So she could finally get some Z’s.

A Glorious Lunch Trifecta
WE’RE ALL MADCAPRA HERE

A Glorious Lunch Trifecta

You. Always needing lunch every day. Well, now you have 1) square-shaped falafel at Madcapra at Grand Central Market, 2) Neal Fraser’s new Fritzi Dog in Saint Vibiana, and 3) Japanese burgers and fried-chicken sandwiches at Humble Potato’s new Culver City place. Sometimes the universe listens.

Saturday
Tyler Durden, and Everyone Else
SOAP STARS

Tyler Durden, and Everyone Else

The first rule of Fight Club: not talking about how old Fight Club is. But you are permitted to roll up to the Electric Dusk Drive-In with a date and snuggle up to the violent epic of contemporary urban nihilism, consumerist ruin and black eyes. Pass the popcorn.

Sunday
All Clear for Sunday Brunch
MOMUMENTAL OCCASION

All Clear for Sunday Brunch

Lots of great new brunch prospects this weekend. The Little Door’s got foie with poached eggs, and Cadet’s doing fried-oyster-and-bacon tartines. The Larchmont is doing ham hock benedict and king crab. If only you had a reason to take someone of great personal import to brunch on Sunday.

TROIS & ORDER

How Trois Mec Works Now

Trois Mec’s getting a little loose with the rules these days. It’s adding a new 9:30pm bar seating next week that’s totally open. You just go by at 9 to see what’s available. No advance tickets. Next it’ll be talking back to its parents and experimenting with smoking.

Starts May 11, Trois Mec, 716 N Highland Ave
