It’s a Whiskey-Infused Pork Sandwich

Clark Street Bread is now open at Grand Central Market. Which is delightful news on its own. Then you realize they have a roast pork sandwich on Danish rye infused with Redemption rye whiskey, plus whiskey-infused pickles and mustard. And the gravity of the situation really sinks in.

Biryani Needed Its Own Day. Thus...

It’s hard to find good biryani, that illustrious South Asian rice dish, in this town. Well, discounting the eight different varieties served every Thursday at Spice Affair with ingredients like shrimp, goat, eggs and halibut. Other than that, so hard.

Harley vs. Indian: Pick a Side, Any Side

It’s a venerable battle of American-made motorcycles about to be played out in the Petersen’s new exhibit of classic bikes. And you can see it first on Thursday with Icelandic beer, DJs and a Q&A at the opening reception. At least the nation agrees that beer is good.

Odd Market Gets an Ocean View

Saturday. You’re on the Santa Monica Pier, thinking things look pretty different. To begin, there’s Odd Market hanging out with 75 pop-ups slinging food and vintage art, music and clothes. Or maybe it’s something with the light.

Happy Hours. They Happen Late at Night, Too.

Yamashiro is a great place to wind down an evening. Especially since it has this new late-night happy hour in its lounge where comestibles like pork spring rolls, truffle hamachi sushi and mai tais will only be seven bucks. The super-dramatic emperor’s castle vibe also helps. Some.

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