ALL THE RIGHT MOVIES

Dinner With Oscar Nominees at Culina

1) You have 11 more days to see all of the Oscar contenders. 2) You still need to eat dinner. 3) Culina will kill birds 1 and 2 with a week of three-course dinners, followed by a different Best Picture nominee in the Four Seasons’ screening room each night. Less screener-drama this way.

Where Your Pistachio-and-Coffee Éclairs Are Hiding

Saint-Tropez is pleasant. But what has it done for you lately? It’s gone and sent you a version of its renowned La Tropézienne Bakery. So now you can experience a whole new world of éclairs, brie sandwiches and pain au chocolat. Since you had to ask.

A Classic Love Story With Pimps, Murder and Pole Dancers

This week is all about true romance. Yes, belated Valentine’s Day shenanigans, of course. But we’re also talking about the pole dance show inspired by True Romance at Federal Bar on Friday. It’s the story of a young lady and the psychotic beau who murders her pimp. And all it’s missing is poles.

The Continuing Achievements of Prime Steak and Crucial Falafel

Dune and Mamacita. The former is a popular Atwater destination for falafel that’s now also open in Downtown. The latter is a fast-casual Peruvian concept where Smoke.Oil.Salt’s former exec chef is doing stuff with prime skirt steak. They are united only by a shared desire to prepare your lunch.

Now open, Dune, 199 W Olympic Blvd, Downtown, 213-628-3586; now open, Mamacita, 6801 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-698-1100, see the menu

Sazeracs and Live Music and Smoking in West LA

The city is changing. For instance, you’ll now find West LA’s Liquid Kitty transformed into Neat by the owner of Belmont, West End and Brü Haus. With Sazeracs, Creole daiquiris, live music and a smoking section. Right, there are smokers here now.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
