A West LA Bar With Sazeracs and Smoking
Plus Dinner With an Oscar Nominee. Hell, Make It All of Them.By Hadley Tomicki
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.
Sazeracs and Live Music and Smoking in West LA
