All weekends go to heaven.

Thursday
Famous Vegas Robata on La Cienega
RAK OF AGES

Famous Vegas Robata on La Cienega

Vegas can keep the lights and the keno. All you want is its Raku. Done. You’ll now find the Japanese house of charcoal-grilled Wagyu, foie gras and ibérico open on La Cienega. Bonus: everything tastes better without the five-hour drive.

Now open, Aburiya Raku, 521 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, 213-308-9393

All-Day Spanish Sandwiches. Yay.
PRESSING THE ISSUE

All-Day Spanish Sandwiches. Yay.

It’s bikini season in West Hollywood. Bikinis. As in those thin, pressed Spanish sandwiches. You’ll find them at BCN, a new Barcelona-inspired lunch spot now soft-open on Santa Monica Boulevard. It’s also bikini season everywhere else.

Now soft-open, BCN, 8719 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-770-9302

Terranea Is a Many-Splendored Thing
AIN’T IT GRAND

Terranea Is a Many-Splendored Thing

Saturday. You’re strolling the Palos Verdes bluffs at Terranea. It’s nice. Then you enter its Grand Tasting event. Someone hands you a glass of pinot. A chef hands you rabbit-and-bacon porchetta. Then it’s nicer.

Sep 26, 6-8pm, $147.50, Terranea, 100 Terranea Way, Rancho Palos Verdes, 310-265-2836, tickets here
